+ Fav Poet


Fierce yet tender, it gallops through mist,
proud and humble, the unicorn comes,
the beast finds the weak, awes the wistful 
but to purity it quickly succumbs.

Beauty’s innocence tempers its wild heart,
and she is enticed by its strength and grace,
the woods are deep, even deeper than art,
where myth and maiden meet face to face.

Though it kneels, she is the one that is moved
by the hope it reveals, the love it holds,
she clings to its mane, feels it disapprove 
for it must remain in legends retold. 

Beauty recalls beast in verse and love song,
while it dwells in sweet dreams, where it belongs.

    this is really nice how you had the unicorn wanting to remain as part of myth and dreams. And the maiden shall comply!! Cyndi, did you get what I was saying about the backwards key? Of course, I can easily see many poems of ONE person without having to use it. But try seeing a page 10 of some poet's and go back to his page 10. It's very complicated to do with the reverse key not working. LIkewise, we cannot go to our comment pages like page 3 or 4 and just click that arrow to get back to them.
