My Lady

Morning descends upon the hill
Cold is the air with nightly chill
Commoners begin to flow into the street
The daily life begins like a seed
I look down the alley with squinting eye
I ask my soul, why do I miss her, why
I see what they brought to this busy place of all
Fruits, weeds, seeds and vegetable
The lyre is playing a haunting weep
Missing your touch, oh so deep
I cast my eyes across the thoroughfare
I can't see, but wish you would be there
The sun sets down there over the hill
The WEE folks leave and the air gets a chill
My Lady I did not find you today
My Lady I could not say
My Lady the words weren't said
My horse is tired and I have to go to bed
Tomorrow perhaps, when the sun will shine
Mom will let me go and perhaps My Lady you'll be mine
I put on my costume of glitter and sword
I will saddle up my wooden horse
Perhaps tomorrow My Lady your mine
Be gentle with me, for I'm only nine.

Helmut, I'm glad you posted this. I love it, of course. You've a wonderful way of expressing your unique and imaginative creations! This piece is perfectly magical, especially with its "wee" bit of whimsy.

I love the atmosphere you created in this work.  The historical setting is the perfect background for your artistic words.  I was entranced by the emotion felt by the "knight" and then I was forced to smile when the truth was revealed.  Absolutely, positively loved it!

You're very kind to thee
