This mistress i write of is a flirt of which we are to visit the moon together.. It saddens my heart to take her along because i fear her being claimed from me by the moon since i sure know she will do some seduction to the moon…. Here is the piece, enjoy it:

Sway with me on this fairy ride
By and by, oh mistress, my dear pride
The stars, winking of mirth gladden tide
Of ushering smiles, twinkling our sides
Till the moon’s gaze scares our worry to hide

Merry, oh mistress!, merry to this cause
On this star lane our lead front for us
So, for us it seems a yellow brick road
But i did worry, yea a twice occurring
Dying of your pervert self, always seducing

The act, an alice in wonderland it is to me
If of sweet love, i of passioned heart be!
If of caring heart, my bosom shall your heart tend
Wither to buy, of your fond to love me truly?
To buy away this flirting from you!

The moon await us dear mistress, anticipating
But if it then at last gain you from me
Often time i thus cry of your lost love!
Sway, and sway with me, let’s our abreast tightens
Till our presence pleases the moons sight.

But my plea of multiple time reoccurring
Of your coyness to vanish yea truly vanish
To please my confidence
That if forever we dine with the moon
Of mine, we shall never, of our heart be apart.

At @dversepoets, we are asked to write as inspired by catrin welz-stein drawings. So this is my selected drawing and the eventual poem! Hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for checking by……

    smiles… no fear that the moon takes her away from you.. you know.. he’s a gentleman.. i like how you picked up on the dreamy mood of the pic…what a fantastical… cool on the star lane and yellow brick road…made me smile..

  2. I know the moon is a great seducer.. to be moonstruck or a lunatic… but at the end the true romance is earthbound a lovely read that really mirrored the image well..

    You use such unique poetic language in your writing, Adam. I really love such such metaphoric lines as ” The act, an alice in wonderland it is to me ” and ” The act, an alice in wonderland it is to me ” I enjoyed your interpretation of this picture a lot, as I used the same one!

    smiles…cool write adam…what a reassurance eh? to stay together…far too easy to chase fantasies that end up leaving us with nothing to show for our love but a broken heart….ther eis a nice playfulness in this as well..

  5. Goodness, I love the romantic plea and cadence in your words ~ Specially like the use of merry, mistress, If of sweet love, i of passioned heart be!

    Happy Sunday ~

    Who knows what pull the moon may take? It’s strong enough to pull the tide from the beach, it can sway love too.
