This is the story of Rapunzel as a fantasy poem with a marvelous background illustration. “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let down your hair”
Blended in the styles of Ruyard Kipling, and Lord Tennyson comes this incredible modern fantasy 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.
The story of a battle wearied warrior resting by a placid river who dreams of a time of peace, only to be brought back to the reality of war too soon. A beautiful, contemplative fantasy poem.
A stark poem about the way justice was handed out in the Old West — by a public hanging. It’s not a poem for everyone.
No ordinary princess here, this is a fantasy poem of a Viking princess battle ready, and battle hardened. A “shield maiden” as often called, and just itching for battle.
“The Dance” is a fantasy 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. A best fantasy poem, and poem of a long and close romance.
The fantasy Cinderella poem is a full version of the story where I was careful to include all the Disney characters, fairy god mother, mice, evil step sisters, grand ball, and glass slipper.
