Little Girl in Pink
Concepción Serrano, later Countess of Santovenia
By Rosales Gallena, Eduardo
She is brilliant in every sense of the word.
Her dress, the perfect mixture of red
and white with a matching ribbon placed carelessly
in her brown, wavy hair, and pink ballet slippers
proved her elegance and grace as she appeared to prance on air.
Her decolletage dressed in gray to match the eerie,
rainy sky, and her coat draped off of her shoulder
as if she was not afraid to pirouette in the pouring rain.
She twirled around to her own personal beat that nobody else could hear.
Filled with so much life, she dances off into another world
without a care. Childlike innocence, my old friend,
I hope someday we will meet again.
