It's late November,
leaves on the trees
beginning to fall;
a chill yet not a freeze.

There's a bedroll in the corner,
in my room up above;
a courier searching for his street.
Zig-zag...as he struggles with his gloves.

This old town-Charleston,
where most are married;
and who could forget
that broken down ole'ferry.

It's a misty morn-slippery porch,
the breeze slightly stirring,
a swing motionless,
just the suttleness of neighbors churning.

As I gaze over the dewy grass
in my view-recognize: shiney shoes,
a pinstriped shirt-tailored,
a familiar face; eyes sparkling blue.

He's my knight in shining armor,
an esquire I now find at my feet.
Humanizing his mystic powers,
~packing rainbows~
my heart pounding as he greets.

A moment in space and time,
for in the distant air-
mother calls in her disgusting yammer;
My mind screams-"No! this isn't fair."

He hears her clamor-
his stature remains unvarnished,
not giving way to a clue
his wit retained-untarnished.

He detects a solemn tear
on the verge of my eye.
In liberation he leans to my cheek
~whispering...with a faint sigh~

"My fair lady...another day
will come for me to bequest
your hand, perhaps in May."

Thanks Denise. Fantacies...yes
Guess I am somewhat surprised as well, but
not everyone cares for just pretend.
Glad you enjoyed.

You weave a lovely tapestry with this one ... ending with a wistful sigh ...

Very nice!

Thank you Noch and Pepper. Your sweet words
are music to my ears.

And Denise you are forgiven. I didn't catch the differences in our spelling, then wondered if I had spelled wrong. At least we knew what we were talking about.

Sigh. Julie this was great! Don't we all at one time or another dream of our night in shining armor, coming to the rescue? Heck, I still do. LOL...Loved it!

I like this one, Julie. Hopefully your knight won't have hairy armor!

Me too...Balladeer, more than that I hope
he doesn't have fleas!

I promise I didn't write that...I was
only the messenger.
