I don’t think it’s embarrassing. It’s lovely. When did you write it?

Thank you, Daniel, that's kind of you to say :-) I wrote it probably 20 years ago!

Rhyme that's very lyrical and easy to read, all of it building a fantasy image that's as beautiful as the illustration here. Very nice. Glad you found and shared it!

How did I miss this?! I don’t think it’s embarrassing at all. I need to find the poem that was published in my high school year book and post. Anyway, I enjoyed this.

That's cool that you published a poem in your yearbook! I hope you do post it. And I'm glad you enjoyed this. I'd like to write more poetry, and there is probably some still lurking in old notebooks waiting for its moment :-)
