A German Fairy Tale - a poem


Wood cut of Wurzburg, Germany.
I was loved
                                                                                                                                  
I was loved here,
Many a year go
In a fairytale ~

Castles, princes,
Knights
Love for the taking.
How soft the haze
That shadows those days
Twinkling past
The lights so warm
How fleeting it all was
Grasping, gasping to hold on.

Sweet words of love often found in fairytales. This could have been taken right out of a book. Loved it!
