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.
Lawmen in the Old West were tough – or dead. This Old West fantasy poem tells the story of one of the toughest.
“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.
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.
The story of Beauty and the Beast somewhat in the Disney version put into fantasy poetry.

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.
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.
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.
A very eerie, and ghost like fantasy poem about an island – far from anywhere – inhabited by only the long departed. A mysterious island of ghosts. Actually, kind of spooky, and best fantasy poem.
