The Forest Prince

The Forest Prince

A Poem by Sarah Marie
"

This is a poem about one of my characters-a forest prince :)

"
The forest is a sacred place
To all the forest kind;
Humans seldom travel here,
For most fear what they find.
Legends countless have been told
About the forest’s creatures;
Yet they are like any other-
But with incredible features.
Mermaid tails of red and gold,
Unicorn horns, and wings abound;
Yet not one strikes attention
Like the wearer of the crown-
He is the prince of the forest,
Clad in acorns, leaves, and vines;
He knows the heart of every creature,
He and the forest intertwined.
His mother was a human,
His father the previous prince;
He chose the forest when a child,
And he has ruled ever since.
He is known for his gentle hand
And taking pity on the weak; 
He is innocent, but he is strong,
The forest prince wise and meek.
He listens only to the sun and moon,
They who created every first;
Every creature after them
Is born, transformed, or cursed.
And when the prince proudly dies,
His pure, sacred soul shall rise;
It shall become a bright, shining star
In the vast heavens of the night sky.

yay!!!
This very much reminds me of one of my favourite songs by Within Temptation called 'Perfect Harmony'.
I love the story that you're telling in this poem; it's very much like the old English fairytales that I used to read when I was small. I can't decide which part I like the best.
