Rapunzel – the fantasy poem

This is the story of Rapunzel as a fantasy poem with a marvelous background illustration. “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let down your hair”

The Doubting Knight and the Fairies – fantasy 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.

Cinderella – the poem

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.

The Christmas Tree – a fantasy holiday poem

The Christmas Tree is an inspirational Holiday poem written especially for the Christmas Holiday. Not my usual poem, but it expresses the importance of family and faith, and the love of God. Bets are on that at the end – you shed a tear of joy. It’s a beautiful Holiday, and best fantasy poem.

Hansel and Gretel — the poem

The story of Hansel and Gretel and how they get lost in the woods, and are taken prisoner by an evil witch, and finally escape — are placed into fantasy poetry. One of the most popular poems on my website.

Beauty and the Beast – the poem

The story of Beauty and the Beast in the Disney version put into fantasy poetry.

Rainbow Bridge – a poem

The story of Rainbow Bridge originated in Norse Mythology of a bridge between earth and the gods. Since then it has morphed into a story of a place where deceased pets wait for their master or mistress, and on their passing are reunited, and journey together to Heaven’s Gate. My tribute to the many poems and stories about this amazing fantasy story. A best fantasy poem.

Snow White — The 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.
