It’s a beautiful Holiday, and best fantasy poem.

Tasmerelda – fantasy poem

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.

The Legend of Evermore – 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.

The Lobsters – 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. This is a fantasy poem and story where such a thing happens.
