Greek Statue

by Clint Inman

A goddess she is, so perfect, so Greek
Carved in marble with classic pose
Ideal perfection from toe to cheek,
Paradigm of Beauty – or so the story goes.

Fixed and frozen forms of art
Might show some sacred ideal.
My love be not perfect in every part,
But I love her best because she’s real.
