Epic For You #poetry #fairytale


the-pond

If I could write an epic tale

wrapped in dragon lore and knights

on a long  and misty trail

reserved for battles and  long fights

the words that I would pen

over each I’d linger long

 all my strength I’d gladly spend

to sing for you a song

If I could live an epic tale

a sojourn in the trees

long and lingering my bath

my only covering the leaves

If I could write an epic tale

replace it with a kiss

I’ve saved myself  so long

you are my sweetest wish

If only I could stop an epic tale

where you are carried out to war

I sit long in my prayers

for a knight on distant shores

If I could write an epic tale

it would carry in a storm

knock over trees in its path

end in arms, yours so warm

If I could write an epic tale

you would be in every scene

faithful to hold me as I failed

your dying fairy queen

***

I am finalizing a manuscript that is fantasy and knights, kings, castles. Everything I am writing seems to ooze fantasy.

Does that happen to you or can you separate out genres in your writing?
