LADY’S SLIPPERA beauty was she, an ethereal spriteHovering in mid-air, a magical sightFlitting through forest and fern and fenSweeping o’er stream again and againHer radiance reflected in every brookJoy, exuberance flooding each lookFace upturned to loving sunWhirling, twirling, mystical funLong tresses dancing, robe flung to the breezeSparkling spirit released, yet quick to pleaseThe chosen one, life-love to beBonded in soul so naturallyTheir days spent exploring bluff and shoreSecrets embraced for evermoreWinding through fragrant cedar standsEternally locked hearts and handsAlas, longevity was not to beAfter parting paths momentarilyAstounding, to be sure, she simply disappearedA tragic fate — the worst was feared…
