Castle Empty Castle

Post  Teresa Jane Price on Tue Jan 31 2012, 10:10

Oh, the hours long since past
When reckoning came with a laugh,
While waterlillies sailed upon a pond,
Till gathering near a slumberous log.
Befitting twas it, this wondrous scene
Of an autumn thinning thicket
With death, though splendidly hued.
And when these leafs weakened and fell,
Laid still did they in rot for spring's renewal.
What of the days that came
When clouds thickened and the leaves twas gone?
Cruel twas the wind with every whirl,
Afflicting the woods as though a compliment to the cold.
And reddened twas noses upon faces frozen.
Yet, we laughed while we played
Upon the mounds of white covered clay.
And twas not a shiver, the shaking of the trees,
But a wintry dance done for a child's please.
Upon that swaying oak or elm,
Climbed did we and made a turrus,
Overlooking the wooded curtainwalls
And the moating fields of frozen dirt.
Oh, the pretense of that a queen,
Hovering with eyes cast upon a reign
Of leafless towers bare no more.
And from this perch, twas seen
Deep water rushing to the ocean.
Oh, the hours long since past
When reckoning came with age,
Besetting memories with chase,
Till we dreamt no more in reflection.

Teresa, I enjoyed this one very much. I like the soft and sight rhymes and the repetition. A good job that emotes much. Mike
