Where the Lake Hushes

Down where the lake hushes,
Through the reeds and rushes,
The breeze it gently touches,
The waters clear and luscious,
The sun glows and blushes.
On the bank the water sloshes,
In the shadow of trees and bushes.
There’s a song of three wild thrushes,
From the leaves that rustles.
And coins lie under flushes,
From people making wishes.
Where the lake hushes.

– Just trying out a different style of rhyming.


Where Magic Lies…

The angels guard the skies at night,
As the stars they lend their mystic light,
Fairy folk and pixie tribes,
Make our flowers come alive.

The tree their village all unknown,
But to a dreamer all is shown,
Evil spirits banned from here,
for black magic is their biggest fear.

The enchanted dance makes nature smile,
you sit and dream and go a mile,
As racing imps ride dragon flies,
Around the woods where magic lies.

This is from my dusty old red book, I’m unsure when I wrote it but it caught my eye today so I thought I would share it! 🙂

My Heart in Your Hands


How can I make you feel the same,
Without a spell or incantation?
And my mind that’s usually fixed and focused,
But I’ve lost my concentration.

How can I declare how I feel for you.
If I can’t just show you my soul?
And my mind doesn’t work when it’s just us two,
And I’m left with your hand to hold!

Your kiss makes my smile wake again,
There it stays and lingers,
And my heart leaps from it’s vein,
And crawls into your fingers.

In your arms and warmth again,
In an aura of protection,
My skin creeps and I can’t refrain,
As it’s craving your affection.

I’d grasp your hand and breathe your air,
Until there came the day,
We’d walk hand in hand til perfection was there
As the wings of love can only carry us half way!

Today I was clearing out my cupboard and I found Narnia!… Ok I didn’t but I did find a scruffy red book filled with my writings from when I was younger. Taking some time to read through it I found poems I had totally forgot about! This one, I wrote when I was 15, I think it’s safe to say I’ve changed a lot in 6 years, however I thought I might share a few!
