The Flight of a Prince - a Poem

Updated on November 3, 2012
Source

We have walked the fields together

Flapped our wings as we bravely fly

Above swollen clouds in bad weather

I fell from high and thought I’d die.


We have soaked in the rain laughing

Not minding to find for cover

Warm pour, ignoring your bluffing

Your eyes love me than any other.


We were both young and carefree

Until your good friend came along

There was just not the two of us but we

In friendship’s measure we three belong.

Then one day our wings touched the last time

You left; days went a hundred longer

I took off my crown like it was a crime

You whispered, “Hush now, soon it will be over.”


He kissed each tear, your friend, he tried

We walked the same fields we once did

Flapped my wings but my heart soon died

Your return will find me in silent bid.


Then you arrived in your brilliant vest of blue

Wearing your crown, dashing, promising

I’m in Heaven’s paradise for my time was due

“Hush now, my love for you have been living.”


Oh prince of mine, we had a lovely time

Where I am, I’m waiting for you day after day

Cloud to cloud, I spread my wings divine

From merry dusk to dawn watch me close, I pray.

The prince's crown turned duller each night

He cried, “God take me please, for her a ring I bring.”

Then one day, the prince made his majestic flight

Off to meet his awaiting bride and loving King.


This peacock prince illuminated, shimmered bright

His armour tail gleamed in hues of eight

God welcomed his royal guest with a ray of light

Wed them and led them through the Gate.


Angels trumpeted; lovebirds spanned their wings again

And thunder drummed sending lightning of seven

They danced like jellyfish to what their hearts contain

For they too now happily reign in Heaven.

      As beautiful as you, Gypsy Rose Lee! I like fantasy and yeah, I have put myself as the female peafowl (as you see me in one of the photos) finding her prince (not a frog) and they lived happily ever after in the Lord's kingdom where the prince peacock got rewarded because of his patience and true-pure wishes. Thank you so much Gypsy! I'm glad that I have delivered it for you to enjoy.

      Reading this just has taken me into a dream state where reality is so far away and in such stunning beauty it dwells here in your words and photos and imagery. Superb writing dear one. Always love the peacocks with their brilliant colors and sheer beauty.

      Voted Way up to the Heavens once again

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Hi tobusiness! I wanted to end the poem/story soon but it just kept going until I said to myself...this has to end, this has to end or no one will read it if it's toooooo long. Glad you love the happy ending. The birds have to be together in their wings, you know because they are such beautiful creatures and that being together, their beauties shall continue. Thank you tobusiness!

      Thank you aviannovice. After my other Peacock hub (What Makes Peacock Feathers So Alluring?), I felt writing a poem about this bird because of how they dance, shake and bow to a possibility in finding a mate to love. And so this poem of "peacock lovers".
