Boudica - A Poem

Genevieve is a Wannabe poet and self proclaimed artist who wishes to do something greater in life.

The legend of Boudica is an inspiring one. History is often bloody in a fight for resource stability. Lives were often short yet eventful where only the most powerful survived. We have come a long way since but we still have a long way to go. By studying the past, we learn not to make their same mistakes.


The sun in her eyes

The wind in her hair

Green grass underfoot

Crumbling soil under nails

Voice trill like the birds

Laughter sweet like the streams

Hair flowing like water

Shimmering bright in the light

Quiet like the mouse

And Swift as the owls

Deadly like the snake

And Mind Sharp like the fox

Nimble as the clouds

And fierce like the storms

Crowned in wreaths of flowers

With Fire burning in her heart

This is a perfect depiction of the Boudica I remember from my history books. Your poem conjured up all the strength of this warrior. Loved it.
