Poem: Elf Lord

I know a man

With silver eyes

Whose heart is cold as snow

 

He’s trapped within a golden globe

Where other men can’t go

 

He loves to listen to all the girls

Sing their pretty songs

 

But try as he may

Try as he might

He cannot sing along

 

I know a man

With silver eyes

Whose heart is still as stone

 

He courted me

And gave me this

A child

Not flesh and bone

 

I raised her up

As best as I may

And hoped only

For the best

 

But father’s call

Has grown too strong

I fear she will not rest

 

She’ll scour the earth

For to find

Herself a human spouse

 

Her silver eyes

Forever behind

A veil

Not a blouse

 

I know a girl

With sylvan eyes

Who wears the guise of a man

 

She’s my daughter

Through and through

I love her

However

I can.

What, can’t I enjoy writing simple sylvan poetry??? Does it have to be epically long every time??? Pish posh!

My, Sam, such harsh language. You’ll scare your readership away.

Anyway. Enjoy.

<3s,
