The meeting with the mystic lady

The meeting with the mystic lady

In the rainbow hills that be my home
 There’s a road that’s cool and shady
And along this road where I did roam
 I met the mystic lady.
Her hair of silk was raven black
And her eyes were burning embers.
Now the years have passed, on looking back
 Oh Lord how I remember.

The rain was streaking from the sky
 In glistened silver slithers
When mystery did me surprise
As I felt me, loves soft shivers.
I saw me such sweet velvet love
And anarchy was reigning
As diamond dreams rained down on me
 Such joy my heart was gaining.

Soft tender arms reached out for me
 As mystic eyes were glowing
And cold sad fear, and misery
 Away these things were going.
And oh, my God I died right then
As angels stole my being
And took me, so my soul would mend
 And sent my demons fleeing.

She raised her hands up to the sky
That shining silver lady.
As I felt her rich waves touch my eye
It almost drove me crazy.
Her finger pointing showed me much
And as I danced my story
So deep within I felt loves touch
And everything was glory.

    Hi Don, thanks mate for your kind comments. It is always good to see these arrogant imbeciles take a tumble. I wish that galah Barnet would fall on his face too, I can't even stand looking at him...Peter

    Thank you Robert. Actually this poem wasn't directed at anyone. It was more of a mystical kind of poem like I always used to write. Written about twenty years ago it just wrote itself. appreciate you kind comments, my friend....peter

    Hi Pandita. I think this poem was more about angels than real people, I wrote it twenty one years ago. I appreciate your nice comments, my friend....peter

    Excellent! I really enjoy well written rhyming stories. They say it's a dying art. Not me. I think it is great. Very well written, good form and fine meter. Thanks!
