As ghost crabs meander
across its gates
I dig a moat
the ocean waits
A bold knight doubts the existence of the fairy people until his Queen makes him a bet, and shows him how wrong he is.
A fantasy poem about a wizard who is unfairly accosted while traveling thru the realm of an evil queen, and gets more than even for the harm done him. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have your own fire breathing dragon around when you need him.
“Chivalry is never dead!
hand on hilt to varlet said
“Chivalry will never die
but certainly you will!”
A fantasy poem of a knight without a sense of humor.
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.
