For a nymph, I fell.

Enamoured with her I am.

With glee, I am spelled.

       Chains cast in steel lift my heart. 

Happy as a lark, I am.

      1. 😀.Not a big deal really. Check out Colleen’s link on my post for more information. There are quite a lot more poetry forms to discover. But then poems are not really your thing……yet. I think you are more of a prose person…a script writer and story teller for now🙂.
