A Bit of Poetry


An intrepid wanderer, 

Lost beneath the sea, 

But when I call you back

Will you come back for me? 

A thousand and one nights

A thousand and one tales to tell

But when time has run out

Will you tell my story as well? 

In a ship of good strong wood,

Singing a hopeful song,

When the storm has set in,

Will you bring me along? 

Through the foggy streets,

By the light of a single lamp,

When the mystery has been solved,

Will it be you I have the honor to meet?

Through a treacherous jungle,

Or along a country road,

In a house’s stairwell where a ghost might pass,

Or through uncut savannah grass. 

On the wings of a dragon, 

Soaring through the sky,

Or on a tall promontory, watching the ships pass by. 

I have no wish to live,

Eyes on the ground,
Walking straight ahead. 

Instead I’ll take the road less traveled, 

And then maybe I’ll fly. 

But I can’t help but wonder,

 A little at a time,

Are all these imaginings simply in my mind? 

Am I really destined 

To soar like a lark? 

And if I am then why

Do all my adventures end with a question mark?  

No negative comments, please, I’m pouring my heart out here!

Adventurer, storyteller, detective, book lover and dragon enthusiast. If you walk into my room, you may run into a stray cat goddess or pirate's parrot. I love Egypt and anything to do with archaeology, am an amateur fencer, and want to be an actress. I am currently living with my parents, and my occupation is student. I'm also a Girl Scout. I have very many diverse interests, including all those listed above and several more. I qualify myself as a Steampunk, which means I love anything old and think I own a dirigible. (If you couldn't tell, I'm a little wacky, but then, all the best people are.) I happen to be a practicing magician and have more books than anyone I've ever met, except my grandmother. Looks like bibliomania is hereditary. What I love is a good adventure. Would you like to come along with me?
