The Maid of the Mists

Some love only azure blue and bright gold
But there’s beauty in the softening mists
All other colours they sweetly enfold
We walked hushed while our skin they gently kissed

The world around you ne’er was plain
Some love only azure blue and bright gold
Every colour is in your face and train
Your loving heart I longed to hold 

Opalescent was the sky when in morn cold
You rose as silent as the new dawn's light
Some love only azure blue and bright gold
You tore me from my mists to the world bright

You were my dream: I followed you
Until I saw your lover bold
Her riches broke me far from my mists true
Some love only azure blue and bright gold

    Grace, this has an old fashioned elegant feel to it. Very pretty imagery! I love quaterns.

    From your title, I thought you would be writing about one of the tourist boats at Niagara Falls. However, I see that is not the case. This is an impressive writing with better than average descriptiveness and very appropriate rhyming.
