Virgo




HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIRGO!

Whenever one reads of Virgos, the mind comes to the fore.
They are highly intelligent people, who always know the score.
They always seem firm and resolute, dependable and calm,
People that one can rely on to lend a strong right arm.
But, inside, the mind's in a turmoil, the questioning never ceases
As they constantly try to be making sense of all life's bits and pieces.
How to improve things, how to fix and how to analyze;
Virgos never stop seeking; Virgos can't compromise.
However, they're not creative; the mind can be closed at times
And sometimes they feel bewildered, looking for reasons and rhymes.
Because they are so logical they may appear cold to some,
But the fact of the matter is Virgos may march to a different drum.
They are very analytical; interrogation suits them well;
They can peer into another's mind  however tough the shell.
Sometimes their way of thinking can seem quite dull and slow;
Preparing for a holiday, they'll never say 'Let's go!'
They'll have to check the tickets a thousand times or more
Before they even take a step outside their own front door!
They need to be wanted, in a very practical way;
Their way of showing affection is to organise the day.
They so love perfection that they may appear quite 'picky'
Which can make a simple relationship something a little tricky.
But, underneath, they're honest and their motives are quite pure.
Not the easiest of star-signs but a worthy one for sure.

Sunny, who, I'm sure, looks just like my illustration (!), has just sent me this!

"In defense of being a Virgo, and in great admiration for your poetry...

I read what you wrote about Virgos
And took it on the chin
Somethings you said where quite truthful
But others...where shall I begin?

It's true that we like perfection
And to me, sometimes it's a curse
But to say that we're not creative
Just makes the whole matter seem worse

You claim that our way of thinking
Can at times, be quite dull, even slow
But I don't think of myself as either
So I felt it was quite a low blow

It's true that Virgos are picky
Sometimes from morning to night
But I know our ways could be mended
If the rest stared doing it right!

Sunny :) "



Dear Sunny, Your dullness and slowness applies to the part we can see!
Inside brains are whizzing and whirring! All poets are clever! BB

I was composing a tabloid advertisement for this as I read: Your star sign in rhyme, only $19.95 on a beautifully decorated wall poster .....

I loved both the original, and the reply poem! Virgo happens to be my Rising Sign, though my Sun Sign is Pisces, so I can totally identify with everything but the dull and slow... That's a bit below the belt, what, what?! (He he he - think about it.)

I was quite surprised and honored that you added my reply on your post.
Thank you and how did you know I looked like your illustration? (ha-ha!)
Sunny :)
