Fair Maiden - Poem by Leslie Alexis

Where are you
Fair maiden
Who spoke so tenderly
Many summers ago,
Whose eager eyes
Captivated me
That to this day
I remember
The way you said
Hello.
Like an orphaned pup
Seeking suck,
So were your eyes
For love…
And all could see.

Where are you
Fair maiden
Whose skin glistens
In youth,
Whose dimples
Form hearts
Beautiful hearts
Which I filled
With my cupped
Lips

Where are you
Fair maiden
Who danced
Into the threads
Of the silkworm
To make her dress

Where are you
Fair maiden
Who walked away.

You walked away
Saying,
'I love you! ”

The waves of your word
Are trapped
Within my heart
And echoes
Off its walls.
And many
So many
Approaching shadows
I thought were you.
But their stand
Is not yours, their beauty
Not yours, they words
Not yours.
Where are you, fair maiden,
My love…
