Poetry by A. H. Scott



If a world be a stage, then a stage be a world 

Enough room for all, no need to crowd

Together we are with common bonds unbowed

Theatrics of fashion

Baby, take a bow

We’re all fibers in this play called life right now

Headliner, eyeliner

Spotlight, coiffed 

Casual and sophisticated, like a flower anticipating bloom

Theatrics of fashion

For all, there is room 

Rose petals from this bouquet flourish with shades so divine

Ladies nine, oh so fine

Soloist and chorus prepare their performance

Hemlines and fitted fabric may not look similar

But, all which is couture caresses their perimeter

Satin, silk, cotton, gabardine and chiffon

Threading that needle of equality we know we can’t go wrong

Flash of fashion’s sway with style that’s soaring

Without the combination of colors life would be boring 

A single fiber from each has a hell of a lot to teach

Threaded by choice is a decision made

Strength of unity only can persuade

Woven threads together make for fabrics that pop with exuberance and swoon

Colors delight beneath sun and moon 

Life’s beauty is the flair of a spectacular rainbow 

Miracle it is, for that variety is what we make it so 

Threaded by choice

Love is the swatch that overrules hate

Threaded by choice is one we all must make 

Theatrics of fashion, we all have our place

Our hues may be different, but we all are of one human race
