Azura Nightsong

Childhood Hideaway

Waning autumn

Waxing spring

Valiant summer

From her lair brings

 

The flighty pixie

Preferring her mind

To the company

Of the rest of the blind

 

In her free moments

She’s drawn to this realm

To whisk away hours

Under emerald elm

 

In solitary throne,

Queen of the Cascades

High above in solitude

In splatterings of shade

 

Till the ebbing of day

Calls her down

And no longer

Does she hold the crown

Love the structure 5 balanced quatrains with a consistent Rhyme Pattern xaxa xbxb etc. This gives it great flow and makes it a delight to recite ! Love the subject of the POEM ~ As a CHILD I had a secret place in a TREE in the local woods ! Yours as always BRIAN !
