Castle on a Hill

The lonely prince’s resolution A perfect lair’s creation Months, years in the construction Verdant fields seen from crenellations Lofty towers his foes’ intimidation The balm to his disaffection But mostly, an ultimate seduction The fairest maiden’s attentions Soon to be his for the assumption From across his fair and wide nation But a chance encounter’s demonstration On the road to the exposition The fairest maid he met, by any definition Yet much to his consternation Nonplussed, the object of his affection The castle not a successful persuasion Swore she would wilt in isolation Issued him the invitation To let go of dream’s fixation Become mere citizen of the nation? 4/24/16 ©Thomas W.
