The Elf in the Meadow

Postby Lalaith on Sat Jan 31, 2015 10:47 am

The young Elven Bard sat alone in the meadow
Singing a sad song, in a voice soft and mellow.
She sang a tale of a broken heart
and of two lovers who swore never to part.

Their love was so sweet and so elven pure
It was one they thought would always endure,
To weather through each and every storm and strife
She had hoped someday to be his wife.

The music she hears now is not that of a wedding
For 'tis six feet below she is now a-bedding
The one she loved deeply wanted her no more
The one she once loved, was her soul, her very core.

The wind blows the leaves over a mound in a meadow
Revealing a ring with a gem of bright yellow
The young elf who left it arrived far too late
He left slowly weeping at the cruelty of fate

The young Elven Bard still is alone in the meadow
The wind sings a sad song, in a voice soft and mellow.
It sings a tale of a broken heart
and of two lovers who swore never to part
