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
