“Perfect Poet” Post for Week 21

June 10, 2010

Hello All,

Jingle was kind enough to select me as a “Perfect Poet” for Week 21 of the Thursday Poets’ Rally, and for that I humbly thank her.
Perfect Poet Award
Here is something I created in response to a Challenge at the Undead Poets Society site:

Listen to this poem

In woodland vale and faerie glen

I.
In woodland vale and faerie glen,
With hornèd brow, and manner keen,
Great Cernunnos, beheld I then,
With Nymphs and Dryads was he seen.

II.
His manner fey, his glance serene,
‘mongst revelers held in his sway,
‘midst shadows which remain unseen,
With graceful steps he made his way.

III.
The dance began at eventime,
Such skillful, flowing movement,
Of silken limbs with grace sublime,
How couldst there be improvement?

IV.
The wind was tossed, the leaves all blown,
Thus caught, I was enamourèd,
At cock’s crow, all but I had flown,
Ill-used and faerie glamourèd.

V.
So traveler, ‘ware! Stray not this way,
Lest cares and woe befall you then,
Hard trudge, your path, ‘til break of day,
Lest to my fate you be sore ta’en.

I would encourage all Poets (Undead or otherwise) and lovers of poetry, to visit the Thursday Poets’ Rally. There is some good stuff out there!
As part of my responsibility as a “Perfect Poet” I would like to nominate Shakira and soulintention: signed ………….bkm as Perfect Poets for Week 22.

Rhyme on!
