PORTRAIT OF AN UNKNOWN GIRL
She looked a nice young kid, fresh-faced, with a sunny smile.
She was sitting in the sunshine, entirely without guile.
I was photographing scenery down there beside the sea,
And she looked up and laughed and said 'I dare you to take me!'
It was such an innocent request, made with a little laugh,
So, there and then, I captured her in a seaside photograph.
Her face was scrubbed and shiny, her hair in a pony-tail;
An everyday girl, she seemed to me, a casual, passing male.
As I turned to leave I questioned her; 'What's your name?' I said.
And, suddenly, I was overwhelmed with a sense of future dread.....
'My name is Norma Jean' she replied 'I'm changing it, you know.
My new name will be so pretty........
It's Marilyn Munroe.'
