Tasmerelda – A Fairytale?

I consider Tasmerelda as one of my best fantasy poems, and the original inspiration for this site. It is a classic fairy tale poem about a beautiful princess kept prisoner in her castle by an Evil Magician who casts a spell on Tasmerelda and her entire kingdom — all pawns in this play of Evil against Good. A knight tries to rescue her, but fails, overcome by the powers of the Evil Magician. The poem ends by asking if this was all but legend, or was it based on reality? And if it really did happen — will Tasmerelda ever be rescued from her fate?
En Tigeray, es Tasmerelda
yearning err the Hooded Elder
and the Knight who rides in white
sighs Tasmerelda through the night

 

As tapestries sway back and forth
the midnight breeze comes blowing forth
and White Knight stands near hooded horror
Calling eerie through her parlor

 

To Tasmerelda, where she be
She sighs and moans to be set free
and White Knight thrusts with sharpened blade
the eerie sounds at last are stayed

 

Tis Tasmerelda at last
set free?

 

But no, he falters
the blade is stopped
and hooded in his eerie frock
The magic plays
The music strays
and White Knight falls to blood fate grave

 

And all is silent
Yes, all is lost
and moaning from her tower loft
cries Tasmerelda for one last time
Now mist and vines begin to climb

 

Eer castle, tower, all in all
the spell is woven
the gatemen fall

 

And all asleep forever more
in tangled garments, and vine tossed lore

 

Was Tasmerelda
ever be?
