Lily Princess Of Prytain

Lily Princess Of Prytain
2015 08 26

When I walked past three oaks to silent pond
to ask young blond girl in tattered red dress
for green bottle of honey back at last,
she enclosed me with light of her green eyes,
then opened box in her breast to reveal
cracked bottle inside dead raven of stars,
so we held hands as we walked country road
past whispering forest to city of glass,
then sat together in large feather nest
as she cradled green-spotted egg all night,
then gave me porcelain doll with her face,
and her face crumbled away into dust
that I packed in pot where white lily blooms.
