First, define the terms.


Luster

She wore a lustrous beauty
Don’t know just what that means,
except it sticks there in my head,
won’t leave me be, wants definition

Luster, I think comes from polishing
Old silver, older brass comes to mind
and yet her youth belies that
She may possess an ancient spirit
