The Lady of WhiteLace Castle


Into the inky darkened elegance 
of moon’s hushed serenade
Within the clove of stately elms 
her presence soon promenades;

The Lady of Whitelace Castle
dressed in a grand and stately manner
shimmers about through frosty limbs
causing many to flee in terror

She brings with her an afterglow
that blushes the unearthly scene
she remains, to some, a welcomed guest
to others an astonishing dream

This lady in ghost white apparel
drifts about from tree to tree
searching in vain for love unattained
perchance could she find it in thee?

    That crystaline knowledge of Stevie Nicks you cant learn in college, it never sticks. But embers of coolness from a summer breeze. These ghost's of tomorrow will eternally please. Peace. :)

    Debra- thank you for welcoming me and thank you for your comment on my first poem in decades! I hope that life doesn't take me away from writing again..this I have allowed. I love the other-world atmosphere of this poem. I felt hushed while reading it as if I breathed, it would intrude upon the scene! Just beautiful! Barbara boyd
