"A Magical Meeting"

Chapter 1
A Magical Meeting

By damommy



Among the trees and summer’s breeze,

I heard a lovely tune.

I found a nook beside the brook

and sat that afternoon.


The music heard had not a word,

a haunting melody.

But soon the song was loud and strong

in ghostly harmony.


I looked around.   What made this sound

that plays for me alone?

‘Twas nothing weird when he appeared

upon a mossy stone.


With flute in hand, he raised to stand,

and bowed with courtly flair.

Then, he was gone, the curtain drawn,

and vanished in thin air.


I’ll not forget – I’ll ne’er forget –

the twinkle in his eyes.

I’ve not a clue of what or who.

He left me to surmise.


These passing years, my heart still hears

his song and sees his face.

Before I die, I hope that I

can find again this place.

Chapter 2
A Long Ago Meeting

By damommy

Of long ago, my mem’ry has returned
to searching for a place my heart has yearned --
the spot I sat beside the brooklet’s flow.
My mem’ry has returned of long ago.
He stood on mossy stone, his flute in hand,
beside a brook in that enchanted land,
and played a tune for me, and me alone.
His flute in hand, he stood on mossy stone,
We neither of us spoke a single word,
the haunting melody was all I heard.
The breezes blew the notes with gentle stroke.
A single word, we neither of us spoke.
When he was done, he waved, then disappeared,
not knowing my poor heart he’d commandeered,
and left me with the mystery he had spun.
He waved, then disappeared when he was done.
It will be found, this magic place I seek,
for I remember well its sweet mystique.
A promise made, a vow that has me bound.
This magic place I seek, it will be found.

Author Notes I wrote about this place a while back. It was title "A Magical Meeting."
