Ode to Jilliana

Poetry is the best way to woo Jilliana
She is Brighton’s very own Oriana

She reigns in so many Salons of Fame
For Piquant Poetry conjures up her name

A travelogue inspired by many nations
So deserving of international translations

Come meet ‘This Wonderful and Precious One’

At dawn the Hebrew connection her rising sun


Never hesitating to highlight ‘Overseas’
Radiant flamboyant Jilliana Ranicar-Breese
