Whenever I see a picture of a river and trees, I can’t help but think of days gone by, romantic and adventurous and dangerous. This week’s prompt for Magpie Tales was quick to bring those thoughts to mind. I’m pretending I don’t see the tops of the buildings in the background. 🙂
Around the ancient river bend
lies future hopes and dreams to tend.
I rushed to meet them without fear;
I beg of you my darling dear, prayers do send.
I’m off to find our future life~
Me your husband; you my dear wife.
If I do not return to you
I am under the waters blue; death here is rife.
Jealousy, greed and lust rule here,
Our captain a weak profiteer.
Each day I rise with knowing dread
By evening fall I may be dead, without my dear.
I’m also submitting this to the open link at Real Toads. I kind of got carried away with yesterday’s challenge and used the Florette format again.
