Girl with wonderous eyes,
she stayed & sovereigned so
even though she never thought
she would be in charge for 70 years.
Born third in line,
she was a normal princess.
But, thanks to her uncle and father,
she was first, in everything.
Her nation became modern under her watch.
Even with scandals, she stood firm,
riding out storms, wars & the terrible years
when her family & countrymen experienced their growing pains.
She received the hardest job as a young wife and mother.
Now her descendants & subjects dot the Earth
as spirits showed off a double rainbow at Buckingham palace,
the very minute she passed away in Scotland.
Amidst the tears, Lillibet,
you stood firm & true.
What would we do now
