The Prince of Poets and Dylan Freak


He was the Prince of Poets

The Jewel of the Sea

The glowing white light

Of the noble and free

He kept court with the wise

Studied Dylan to a tee

His affection was sincere

And even dared to revere

The Queen of his life

A Dylan Freak whose veneer

Of painted face and silks so sheer

Loved him so dear

And without any fear

But lived too far to be his wife

And it bothered him greatly in life


So one day he swam out to sea

To try to bridge the gap between the Queen and he

But alas, he proved not mightier than the waves

And he perished to the depths of the ocean

Which caused a great deal of commotion

But not so much as to compare

To Queen Dylan Freak so fair

Who mourned his demise

For much of her life

Until the day she set sail

To meet her fate as the wife

Of the seafaring ghost of the Prince

Who has reigned over the watery deep since

And she became his in spirit for eternity

No longer a part of the tapestry of life

Joining the dearly departed fraternity

As beloved Majesty and wife.

Maria, Colin is right. You are a fine poetic storyteller and this one has the ring of classic mythology to it. Very romantic and tragic also; lovers separated and making the ultimate sacrifice to be together only to be joined forever in eternity. Lovely imagery painted by your words here. I look forward to reading much more from you! Voted up, awesome and beautiful.
