Fairytales make life’s romance enchanting,
Beguiling souls, entrancing, enchanting.

Reality can change dreams’ to yearnings,
Thinking of tomorrow’s views, enchanting.

Peaceful thinking ignites inspiration. 
Ending fights and frights with right’s enchanting.

Haughty hearted men may stay in shackles,
The modest souls live each day enchanting.

Evil smites godliness as wealth rabbles.
The godly give their kindness…enchanting.

Conceit looks up to self, down on others.
Meekness wears modesty’s crown…enchanting.

Dishonesty destroys mighty friendships
Truthfulness sets trusting free…enchanting.

One intricate surviving machine, earth, 
Strives, thrives, co-exists, and gleans…enchanting.

Mountain splendor boasts glorious vastness.
Lovers join mysterious enchanting.

Nature’s beauty arouses man’s spirit,
Designing beautiful lands, enchanting.

    Couldn't agree more with many of the things you said, Dane Ann, especially "Peaceful thinking ignites inspiration." When we are most at peace, we find our best inspiration. Some think good poetry springs from agony. Looking back at the poems I wrote when depressed, I know this is not true. You have a gem here and deserve your shining "star." Love, Carolyn
