Buttercups and Blue Belles


She glint the knight in shining armor
One mourn, just before the sun did shine
He paused at a headstone
That had no year, nor had been signed


This knight she knew, oh so well
Master of sword and feather pen
She thinks back on the letters
Hidden in the hollow tree in the glen

Each morning, at suns break
There would appear, a love note
Fresh wild flowers, always rapped in scroll
He was her knight, and of his love he wrote

Then the day came
The strange message appeared
Simply saying…”You have loved a lie”
The ink so oddly sloppy and smeared

The grave she knows, belongs to one
Who could neither read nor write
More then four words at a time
But his smile put her heart in flight

The boy was the student
The knight his master
And forbidden friendship they shared
Had only caused disaster

No more love letters from that day on
She recalls, as tears sting her cheek
And the knight rides off alone
Her future now, so dark and bleak

In morning light a stable boy
Would pick, buttercups and blue belles
The colour of her hair and eyes
She knew his secret, but her lips never did tell

They were penpals
He had a flare for words
A stable boy, who wrote so beautifully
Was just simply, unheard of and absurd

Yes words are quiet powerful and magical,
the message at the heart of this tale is the same for this site, When we write poetry we show parts of ourselves that we often keep hidden in real life, this site allows us a wonderful freedom to escape from life and express ourselves openly and freely to be judged only by our words and nothing else. We are all stable boys and girls, but here we are knights of poetry.
A Beautiful poem, an excellent read.

Marina, I have to say, without a doubt this is your best. You keep improving, in leaps and bounds. The story was wonderful, maybe you should try short stories.
