The Wood Spryte and The Maiden

through the forest glades
the sylvan frecks about
a comely maiden wades
alone she has no doubt
a melodious wind catches her ear
mayhaps another soul is near
too enticing to ignore
fair maiden must explore
a steadfast knight conseilles
a griphon abyds in yonder hills
avow ye fair lass that ye shall not pass
tis a perilous journey into the myre
comest here oh maiden fair
abyd by the warmth of the fire...
did i mention the sylvan's a bigiler?
oh what a guade this debonaire fraude
and with no contricioun he confirms her suspicion
his concupesence so clear
oh fair maiden comest here

    Are you saying that relationships can be dishonest? Comely maidens sometimes have great predicaments

    This put me in the mind of the German epic Siegfried.

    I love this poem... it's so clever and so good with rhymes! Oh, and by the way I want you to know that this poem is incredible... you should really think about getting it published. I know a great website that publishes poetry in a book and you get paid. (It's a contest.) You could easily win; this poem is dynamite! Visit and you'll find it under the tab: "Monthly Contest." You really should enter it... it is a truly outstanding poem.
