LOOKING FOR A BRIDE

She was young and innocent..the kind he chose
Skin so soft..cheeks pinched red as a rose
His black eyes stared at her from across a room
Needing a bride..a prospective groom
As he approached her..the thunder clapped in the skies
Torrential rains fell and the angels cried
The Creator sad and his tears fell
The young innocent was under the man’s spell
She never noticed the handsome man had hooves
He was not someone this young girl should
Dance with .. this girl so young
Just wanting to dance and have some fun
He whispered something in her ear
And there was a puff of smoke..they both disappeared
Into the fires and furies of hell
The devil had her under his evil spell

Artist's Description

When I was in Catholic high school, I had an elderly nun who told me a story
that when she was a young girl she went to a dance and someone asked her
to dance as she was walking to the dance floor she looked down and he had
hooves…knowing he was the devil…she turned away and when she looked
back he disappeared..Of course today I realize it was a metaphor..but then
I took it very seriously and checked out feet all the time…So this poem is
dedicated to sweet Sister Gabrielle..
