The Princess Elf

The Princess Elf

“ Hello Elfin ” he said

Captivated by her delicate and sylph demeanour
Smiling eyes of ageless shinning
All tousled dark hair
And flower braids on alabaster skin
While in the snow drop dew
He felt his heart melting

With the twitch of some fading shyness
She bolstered up on some sense
Of dare to
Perhaps a little confused
But still a teasing humour enthused
At her own misplacement in the senses, sense of order
Brought her own bright energy of disorder

So much love, he thought
As if the ages flowed in translucent veins
So much courage and strength contained
In this sweet slip of a girl
So much glowing passion
To make his heart beat upon its rapid intoxication
On the sound of her excited giggle
And in the snow drop dew
He felt his soul
Melt
Drifting into the quiet autumn pools
Of hypnotic sighs

So tall and muscular he felt beside her
Some ancient Knight he might have been there
And in his fibre
Wanted ever to protect her
To hold her safe
In this her exuberant freedom
Should she need it
Gladly he would give and be her guardian

His prize and treasure simply to watch
As this fairy light
Danced in the deeping forests
While all her dreams responded
Coaxed from out their realms
Where on this moment in the snow drop dew
He felt his heart and soul did truly melt

Quiet now; the pounding of his pulse
The whisper of her voice
Soothes and slips him from the troubles of thought
And on the leaves in barefoot she leads
Into the forest deeps

There they made their silent pact
And wedded
There they stay of naked love
Dancing together endlessly
