At Least I Tried.

He came upon the midnight clear

Settled close to me then whispered in my ear.

There is nothing in this world for you to fear.

Nothing, never more my dear!

So come with me let us escape at once from here.



He was so black and handsome his feathers oiled and slick

His beak so sharp and shiny, I wondered if he, would me nip?

His beady eyes so sparkled they made my heartbeat flip.

He made me feel alive at last my heart began to tick.

He promised  me earnestly that this was no trick.



From my vantage point up in the oldest tree

There was no part of the landscape that I could not see.

Come, come enticed he, take heart my girl believe in me.

Be brave he urged ,come take flight you and I shall be free



If only, my beauty, my sweetest girl you believe in me!

I closed my eyes and spread my arms out wide

I felt his jet black wings brush my face and side.

I stood and stepped forth, he could not, his excitement hide.

I felt the wind take me up, my senses scream as I began to glide

I heard his  laughter as I fell, and on the forest floor died .


No one knew, no one cared not one single soul cried.

As for me?…… well at least I had tried.

    speaks of trying, to me Sweet Willow, no matter if you don’t succeed, that’s not the main objective. ’tis making the effort, … succeeding is a bonus methinks.. It did flow my friend..ever so… hugs aplenty. xPenx

    Regardless what we accomplish, the only thing of real importance of what we gave ourselves to ~ the weight of our heart, the song of our soul. The rest matters little. I love this, Willow. ~ Love, Bobbie
