LADY’S SLIPPER
A beauty was she, an ethereal sprite
Hovering in mid-air, a magical sight
Flitting through forest and fern and fen
Sweeping o’er stream again and again

Her radiance reflected in every brook
Joy, exuberance flooding each look
Face upturned to loving sun
Whirling, twirling, mystical fun

Long tresses dancing, robe flung to the breeze
Sparkling spirit released, yet quick to please
The chosen one, life-love to be
Bonded in soul so naturally

Their days spent exploring bluff and shore
Secrets embraced for evermore
Winding through fragrant cedar stands
Eternally locked hearts and hands

Alas, longevity was not to be
After parting paths momentarily
Astounding, to be sure, she simply disappeared
A tragic fate — the worst was feared…
