Rapunzel – fantasy poem

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

A British Soldier in Zululand – fantasy poem

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 Warrior and the River -fantasy poem

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.

The Hanging – Old West 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.

The Viking Princess – fantasy poem

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 – a romantic fantasy poem

“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.

Cinderella – fantasy poem

This 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, prince, and glass slipper.

Snow White — poem

This poem about Snow White tells the entire story of Snow White, and is the most popular Snow White poem on the web. It is true to the Disney version of the story, from start to finish. A best fantasy poem.
