As if removed

By whistling winds from my view

The vision smiled

And gently slipped away.

Was it a dream

In the stillness of the woods

Or did some nymph

Decide to come and play?

 

She was there

In the Nightingales singing

In the distant sounds

Of a far-off woodland stream

But when she touched me

I saw the sands of time

And I do believe

That I heard my spirit scream.

 

She came alive

By the words that I wrote

 Her heart beat

As the ink touched a page.

 But she remains in the shadows

As in phantom

For she cannot find her place

Upon the stage.
