Vision – A Quadrille

Vision

In the early morning light

You are a vision without a care

Long red hair tied up in a velvet ribbon

Your green dress worn with flair

 

You are playful in spirit

and full of excitement

To say you are beautiful 

is an understatement

    that is a vision, like a wood spirit emerging from a mist of dreams – lovely to be early and catch such a vision in my mind

        I am writing a story with a dear friend and we got caught up with wood spirits and the like. so your poem really added to that magical feeling. yes the Irish are a mystical race indeed.

        Lol! And they believe in Fairies and witches!

        I never associated that until I read outlander. remember Geillis…was that her name? she was awesome!

        Yes that’s her. If you remember they used to sick babies in the trees to see if the fairies would take them. Also the Rowan Tree is believed to keep the witches away. The Scots are superstitious 🙂

    Beautiful and picture and Heart felt delivery. The voice perfect for this. Not sure if memory or snap shot of current day, but either way an image that lasts eternal. Very good.

    This is lovely… a great spirit of wood… in our folklore she could be a hulder … and she could sometimes also seduce men to be lost in the woods.
