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

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.
Oh I like that a lot. Thanks for sharing some of your folklore 🙂
I like how beauty is an understatement to being playful and full of excitement.
Thanks Frank. 🙂
Thanks V.J. I seem like the mystical stuff lately 🙂
Absolutely powerful poem, darling. Nicely done.
Thanks sweet girl 🙂
Beautiful as a wood nymph, which I believe can only be seen in the early morning light.
Youre probably right! Thaks Kim
Thanks Ros 🙂
Thank you my friend 🙂
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.
Thank you! Gina though it might be a Wood Spirit and I was thinking a fairy 🙂
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
Yes fairies and wood spirits 🙂 Irish of course!
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.
And the Scots!
ehmmm….well yes! the accent is definitely seductive
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 🙂
yes the changeling! i am so fascinated by all these folklore. love that scene of them singing at dawn with the lights
Oh yes and the theme music. Ahhhh 🙂
oh yes Christine…love that so much, i feel i could just float away with it
Beautiful poetry. Thanks for sharing
Oh thank you my friend🙂💕
You are welcome.
