This is the story of Rapunzel as a fantasy poem with a marvelous background illustration. “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let down your hair”
This awesome story of two brothers, both mountain men, separated by a life and death fight with injuns, and their surprise reunion is without doubt a best Old West poem.
A somewhat tongue-in-cheek fantasy poem about a knight who refuses to believe in fairies, and is taught a lesson by his queen.
Blended in the styles of Ruyard Kipling, and Lord Tennyson comes this incredible modern war poem about a British Colonial Soldier in the late 1800’s, and his experience in the Zulu Wars. I consider it one of my best fantasy poems.
This fantasy poem tells the story of a battle wearied warrior who rests by a placid river thinking and dreaming of a time of peace, only to be brought back to the reality of war far too soon. I think it is a beautiful, contemplative fantasy poem, and although short, is one of my best fantasy poems.
Lawmen in the Old West were tough – or dead. This Old West fantasy poem tells the story of one of the toughest.
Cinderella is an ancient story told in many different countries. I have blended the Disney version with the French version from the 1600’s into a fantasy poem very close to both, and was very careful to include all the Disney characters. Like my earlier poem, Snow White, it was a task where I took an entire story, from start to finish. I think it will be an extremely popular version of the story – set to poetry, and I consider it one of my best fantasy poems.
A poem dedicated to the amazing women in the nursing profession who served on the front lines risking their own lives in service of mankind and their country. While written as a war poem in honor of the nursing profession, it is also easily a best fantasy poem.
The story of Beauty and the Beast in the Disney version put into fantasy poetry.
A fantasy story , in allegory, of a beautiful, but shy woman, trapped by her own loneliness, who meets a man, purely by chance, and of the relationship that builds between them. A personal favorite, and a best fantasy poem, although one of romance.
A woman, lost at sea on a ship much like the Titanic, the love of her husband never wanes until he grows old and ghost-like, they are reunited. A very ghostlike feeling permeates this entire fantasy poem and love story. I consider it a best poem.
Arriella is a fantasy poem written in allegory about a beautiful princess kidnapped by an evil magician, and how she is rescued by a brave knight with the help of a magic cloak and magical spells. It is really a story about the evil of kidnapping set in another time and place. I consider the story a classic fairy tale, and a best poem.
A knight travels out into a thick forest and spots a lone dwarf who he is about to kill with an arrow, when the dwarf asks the knight to spare him. He obliges, and is repaid a hundred times over when the dwarf, a king of his kind, saves the knight and his queen years later. A very popular fantasy poem on this site, a great story, and in my opinion, a best fantasy poem.
The Yellow Ribbon is a story originating in Civil War that has morphed many times since. My version is close to a popular song, and tells the story of a man on a bus, just released from a long jail sentence, who does not know if his family wants or will accept him back. If they want him – he has instructed them to tie a yellow ribbon around the big oak tree that stands beside the road just before the village. If he doesn’t see it – he will just ride on. A best fantasy poem.
A Disney classic fairy tale put into fantasy poetry, and perhaps the most popular Snow White poem on the web. I tried to be as true to the story as I could, from start to finish. I think it’s about as good as it can get, and is certainly one of my best fantasy poems.
Tasmerelda is a classic fairy tale poem much like the beginning portions of the Sleeping Beauty, but tells the story of a princess kept prisoner by an evil magician who thereby lures a brave knight to the castle to rescue Tasmerelda. In my version the evil magician is more powerful than the knight, and is only toying with him. Once the knight is defeated, the magician puts the castle and all its inhabitants into a spell and deep sleep – forevermore. A best fantasy poem.
This best fantasy poem answers the question what happened to Tasmerelda? It combines several forms of poetry all into one poem, all flowing easily. A personal favorite.
A very eerie, and ghost like fantasy poem about an island – far from anywhere – inhabited by only the long departed. A mysterious island of ghosts. Actually, kind of spooky, and best fantasy poem.
A fantasy poem in allegory of a beautiful woman who makes a choice to reject her love, and pays for it in lifelong isolation. “She sits on a mountain surrounded by snow, it is a place where only she can go”. A best fantasy poem.
My fantasy has always been to purchase a lobster or two, and set them free, far in the deep sea – as a gesture of thanks for all nature has given us. This is a fantasy poem and story where such a thing happens, and the gratitude the lobsters show every year when the woman who freed them visits them far on the Azure Sea. A best fantasy poem.
