This is a ghazal (sixth century Arabic poem) suggested by Samuel Peralta. The rules for this form are on the dVersePoets site (see link at end of poem).
Accomplished student, athlete, was her child.
Beloved by the gentry, was her child.
Sweet and kind and loving, a help to all
Ever at hand and ready, was her child.
Outstanding young woman with style and grace
Leader without enmity, was her child.
One day, without warning, a blast rang out
Shot by unknown enemy, was her child.
Still lovely, lithe and with a youthful face
Immortalized by vb, was her child.
