Once upon a darkness

the moon shone luminous bright

casting slivers of silver shadows

as long as the tail

of a flown away kite

Weaving and wending

its winsome way

among the silent

silhouettes…to stay

And that is how she came to be

as close

as ever she dared..

the maiden, shy

who rode the wild and windy midnight air…

beyond the days of

breezy cotton daffodils

and velvet softened lilies,

of freshest spring

and hot dry summer ..

until the far off time brushed near

and spicy autumn’s harvest song

rang strong and clear..

Over and again

the notes, they played

as never they had before..

Rock me slow, my love

to the hope of autumn’s score..

and we shall dance, in the stillness in between

the faded starry twilight

and the rolling hills

…of evermore

  1. Very nice. Lyrical and lilting, musical and evocative, with some nice images. Made me think of Poe or another American Romantic (Longfellow?). I enjoyed this. Take care and keep writing!
