    Tasmerelda - A Fairytale?
    © jon gutmacher 2009

    En Tigeray, es Tasmerelda
    yearning err the Hooded Elder
    and the Knight who rides in white
    sighs Tasmerelda through the night

    As tapestries sway back and forth
    the midnight breeze comes blowing forth
    the White Knight stands near hooded horror
    Calling eerie through her parlor

    To Tasmerelda, where she be
    She sighs and moans to be set free
    and White Knight stands with sharpened blade
    the eerie sounds at last are stayed

    Tis Tasmerelda at last
    set free?

    But no, he falters
    the blade is stopped
    and hooded in his eerie frock
    The magic plays
    The music strays
    and White Knight falls to blood fate grave

    Yes, all is silent
    all is lost
    and moaning from her tower loft
    cries Tasmerelda for one last time
    Now mist and vines begin to climb

    Eer castle, tower, all in all
    the spell is woven
    the gatemen fall
    Now all asleep forever more
    in tangled garments, and vine tossed lore

    Was Tasmerelda
    ever be?

    {author's tip: the last two lines ask the following questions:
    1. whether Tasmerelda is just a fantasy myth, and if not
    2. if she was real . . . will she ever be rescued?}:p
