A bride in search of her groom.

In White


A vision approached, a distant view,

a magnificent horse, so white;

and on his back he bore someone,

a beauty of some delight.


Her dress was like a wedding gown,

but a groom she was without;

the men were really spell-bound

but the women felt much doubt.


She passed along the village street,

smiling at all she saw;

if she even noticed

she ignored the slam of door.


She continued to a meadow,

where the grass was really sweet;

her horse could graze to it’s fill

while she’d wait for who she’d meet.


Someone was sure to follow her,

and he would be her groom;

he’d be so entranced that he

would be led blindly to his doom.


She waited and she watched,

of patience she had plenty,

but the time was moving forward

and the road it still was empty.


Time to get a move on then,

she’d go on to the next town;

a groom would be there waiting,

for fate would not let her down.

A sweetly wicked piece! The power of an enchantress, but it seems this one's power is waning.

Ha! Yep, it sure does. Totally inspired by the cover pic, Jeff. Thanks so much for giving it a read!

I know, Moa. The horse is fantastic; I'd love to be able to own one like that. Thanks so much for giving it a read.

I just loved the horse in the pic, Sue, just like one I'd love to own. I had to think of some way to use it and this is what came to mind. Glad you enjoyed the read.
