A Man’s Home Is His Castle

A Man’s Home Is His Castle

From the ramparts I stood searching,

A majestic wonderland just outside,

The brightness of the snow blinding,

Diamonds sparkling on every side,

A wealth of beauty on display,

Three deer have crossed my Sherwood,

Cardinals perched on empty tray,

Not far from where I motionless stood,

Upset that seed was gone, boldly had their say,

A man’s home is his castle it is true,

But without a queen to stoke love’s fire,

His heart becomes frozen through and through,

Now the wilderness and all I command,

Stand stark against the evening sky,

Soon darkness will sweep across the land,

And all I can do is wait and sigh,

She was strong willed and independent,

Not willing to quietly listen and obey,

Outspoken, she followed her own bent,

Disruptive in each and every way,

And yet, It was as if the world shook,

When she was there to play her part,

With each delicate step she took,

It was clear she loved with all her heart,

But to let her be so independent was absurd,

She was not what I expected her to be,

I sent her away with terrible kingly words,

But now I see, she was meant for me,

I’ve waited through the coldness of night,

I’ve climbed to the top of this tower of ice,

Where I can catch the first sight,

Trusting she learned of my new decree,

Hoping she’ll forgive, and it will suffice,

A king on my knees, willing to plea,

Hoping she’ll forgive and return to me.

  1. I certainly hope with you for her return. Another fairytale! I love the image of Anna Vissi, she is a Greek singer, I don’t like her very much, but it felt somehow homey to see something Greek on your post!

    1. Nobody to return. Just a dream. Realities are too sad for me so I write dreams or memories.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

      1. As I watch out my windows alone my imagination soars. Sad ending, but fun to write.

        May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    1. To get a chuckle or two read “The Perfect Woman” and “The Skunk and the KKK”.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    1. Love is patient and kind, willing to wait and overcome all obstacles.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
