A Maiden’s Delight

A Maidens Delight short poem

Return with good reason
Oh fair weather season
For the ships are sailing away
Into the light of the new day

Return fair sweet maiden
Though your heart’s heavily laden
For on this uncertain day
Please hear me when I say

I’ll find a way to light the dark path
No mournful scorn or dull aftermath
We will whistle soft sweet tunes
As we stroll o’er hill and dune

So return oh sweet Mistress
Free from pain and deep distress
Your path is now straight and clear
You may walk once again without fear

Released from the shadow
Freedoms cry drowns the sorrow
We’ll light the dark days
No more wintry haze

Oh sweet maiden fair
Let your scent fill the air
