    Ode to Elvenar
    (From a battle weary Elf)

    I slept last night upon a bed
    of leaves and vines that furled,
    and wound until they'd made a wall
    to shield me from this world.

    As intricate as winding dreams,
    they wrapped me close to keep
    the nightmares from invading
    as I lay me down to sleep.

    And in that wall, a door appeared
    of bark and acorn shell
    that opened onto sunlit fields
    replete with asphodel,

    that wavered in the breeze
    as ghostly figures passed anon,
    sweet smiling in their passing
    into shadows and were gone.

    And dark'ning skies exploded
    into sparkling stars abright
    with diamond haloes hov'ring
    o'er angels wings in flight.

    And peace became a blanket
    floating gently from the skies,
    enveloping humanity
    and opening my eyes...

    from where I lay upon a bed
    of leaves and vines that furled...
    and wound until they'd made a wall
    to shield me from this world.

    Many thanks to you Alexander1972.
    To have read it once was more than I expected...so to have read it many times was very special.
    Thank you.:)

    Another poem for you all.:)

    The Green Man

    Beneath the eager whispering trees, and moonlight's wandering,
    the woodsman's plaintive cry ascends as he begins to sing.
    In earthen tones so deep in lore, as ancient as the bark
    that grows upon the oaken trees and thrives within the dark...

    that moves and sways around his song caressing every sound,
    as all the creatures of the wood stand rooted to the ground.
    And spring becomes alive again with buttercups and vine,
    where faery folk on dragonflies sip flasks of golden wine

    amidst the wild flowers blooming, yellows, reds aflame,
    to celebrate the sunlight and the planting of the grain.
    Whilst birds, delighted with their wings, achieve a heav'nly flight,
    arising from the safety of their nests into the light.

    "And all is well," The Green Man sings beneath the whisp'ring trees
    and holds his arms aloft to gently mingle with the leaves.
    And as another dawn erupts through amber tinted sky,
    so ends the woodsman's song...upon the breeze...a last goodbye.

    There once was a player called Ophion
    Who is a most excellent companion
    His most excellent poems are world famous
    Most certainly he is not an ignoramus

    He has many poetry fans
    Including those who live in Kazakhstan
    His poetry is most gifted
    Most certainly Uplifted.
