Be still oh heart within this aching *****, For sight of she hath caused this thrilling tremor!
When through gossamer haze I first beheld her,
Arrayed in winters coldest blues and whites,
Her locks burning bright as silver flame,
Awash in purest of all heavenly lights!
An undulating melody drips from sweetest lips,
Tis born to me upon a gentle breeze,
I hearken to her song with all my will,
Struck with deep desire, my soul doth seize!
Were I to rush upon this Fairy apparition,
Away would vanish I deeply fear,
And if she were to leave this world my home,
Oh heart would rend and fall with many an icy tear!
But am I not a fabled son of light?
Fear in me I often boldly best!
And If I do not try to win this Maid,
Death I know will take me off to places where grandsires rest.
A dash through cold and mist, to grasp her silken hand
Upon one knee I fall, I dare not stand!
To trembling lips I brush those tender fingertips…
With quivering voice I lay my heart open
Not daring to look into those emerald eyes,
But when I feel her hand fade in my grasp,
This heart in flaming chest, breaks and dies!
Bewitched, Beloved, Bereft... Be Still...
A tribute to romantic tragedy...
