Wil-O-The-Wisp - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

Enchanted Wil-O-The Wisp Wanderer
You cannot escape his sea-blue
Eyes View
For set in water they are
Upon this beautiful form
Of You
Cladden In White Chantilly Lace
A flowing gown of floral crochet
But somewhat sheer in certain light
Seen in his eye near the bay
You walk along the sands O' time
Upon the shorelines
Passing Scene
O' enchanted Wil-O-The-Wisp Wanderer
You are the woman of his dreams
His sea of blue eyes come calling
Beckoning you away from the shore
Perhaps, anew, A Mermaid borne
And a Wil -O- The- Wisp Wanderer
No More

    This 'creation' sparkles with much light and hopefulness. My favorite line...'His sea of blue eyes come calling...Beckoning you away from the shore perhaps' VERY nice. Ms are something else! (Report) Reply
