A Vain Peasant in King Arthur's Court

A Vain Peasant in King Arthur's Court

A Poem by Joshua Carl Cruz

i was once an artist's brush,
the minstrel's strings in early spring.
i was the touch of a pixie's dust
fairies sprinkled over children's dreams.
i was the hero's humblest hope,
i was love's indelible flames.
Now i'm so afraid of growing old,
I live alone, below my lake.
I've since retired as inked quill,
winter's chill has broken thy guitar
but, the quietly whispering minstrels will
carefully construct this song:
Oh, he was alive! 
And just like us
in that, he died 
as will we, and such.

i'm amazed at the way you put words together. the rhyming and alliteration even hidden within the middle of the sentence or word sounds really good! the couplet at the end is so beautiful and striking, i could hear a human voice speaking it to me rather than my own inner voice reading... great job!

All those "things" you were as inked quill. Writers do become what they write, regardless of their "real" life. Another gem, Joshua.
