Here’s my take on this –
~::~ Soppy Reveries ~::~
I stood there waiting ‘neath the trees
My curls blown astray by the breeze
A cloud burst from murky sky’s seams
Sending down showers like jet streams
The wind bellowed with howling screams
While I stood, upholding my dreams
Of fairy tales and knightly themes
Mellow moors and dancing moonbeams
The sky lights up and showers ease
While I’m lost in my reveries
