Broom in Moonlight

By the light of the silvery, awesome moon

The youth jumped over the broom.

And the maid, doing as she was bid, jumped too.

And so the two were wed.

In the shadows, on the sward, ’til rise of the arching sun

They kissed and swayed and rocked as one.

And the rabbits scurried away in haste

At what was being done.

Birds fly, seasons roll, and the maid feels where she’s bound

As the harvest grows and the chill comes on.

And the sky turns grey with bloated cloud

And the youth seeks out around.

But the youth has gone, the maid is lost

And the sea, in rhyme is tossed.

As the screams ring out throughout the grove

And the blood seeps down the glove.

By the light of the awestruck moon

The youth who jumped over the broom

And the maid, doing as she was bid, jumped too.

And so the three were fled.

Author: poetryparc2

Here goes: I read poets and around poetry and any other book I take a fancy to. I seem to have a preference for seeing the changes from the Victorian period through to the 1930's, maybe 50's. But, and a big but, I also read anything right up to current poetry/performance poetry. Sometimes my ‘historic’ preference for 'imagist' and ‘Nature' unnerves me for too much too modern. However, I do like to range over poetry and fiction, any and all periods. I also like finding (if only for me) regional or partly forgotten poems and poets. Maybe all this is too eclectic to have a themed 'Blog' but so be it....... I also write fiction that might add up to a small mole-hill one day. Plus reviewing new or old books that are relevant to my enthusiasms of Crime Fiction, the Arts, Natural History and Special Education. This is on 'wordparc'. I try to record honestly what I think but if something is too bad (to my mind, others may love it!!) then I will not 'blog'. I buy or borrow to read and review. If there is a click-through it is meant to be useful though ‘wordery’ might give me a small % at no cost to you. There, what's that if not seemingly random!
