Light blond hair, blue eyes

All Leo fire

Chunky necklaces, perfume in fancy bottles

Class, personified

Almost too cool to be called grandma

You gave me your love of art

Ballet, Paris, the joie de vivre

You taught me that sometimes you need an extra pretty dress

Whether or not the occasion calls for it

That wine is always appropriate

Because life, after all, is a celebration

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen you cry

You, pure Leo fire

Class, personified

Beauty is as beauty does, you told me

Always be beautiful on the inside

Because that’s where beauty really is

All the accouterments of the good life

All the pretty things

Pale in comparison

To a beautiful spirit

Lipstick and painted nails to do not make the lady

It is the spirit, the fire

The beautiful you — inside

The beautiful you

The beautiful you

Class personified
