“The Dance” is a poem of romance almost like a short love story. Written in free verse, it is a fantasy or reality we all have wished for — here symbolized by a romantic dance to a Sinatra tune, between an older, but still very much in love couple. And as they dance, it seems to bring all of that together. So, this fantasy poem, one that I consider a best fantasy poem, and poem of a long and close romance.
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 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.
