The Mountain Sprite

Wandering
In the autumn woods
Pondering
Dreamily
A song came into my heart
Inspired by a sprite …

High in mountains living wildly
With a wisdom based in fire, she
Sings her spells and works her magic
Laughing, dancing with old phantoms …

With a hi lo dum di rum-ly
With a springing step in passing
Twinkling bright as bright moon beams, she
Howls in chorus with the stormlings.

Wake now, walk on in the mountains
Wade the rivers, walk the meadows
Meet the Lady where she wanders
Though you may not see her spirit.

High in mountains living wildly
With a wisdom based in fire, she
Sings her spells and works her magic
Laughing, dancing with old phantoms …

Carpe Diem Haiku Special – BrunuhVille

castel reflections

Toblino Castle (Trentino, Italy)

the lord king riding
meets the cruel enemy
cries of glory

coming home
long voyage now behind us
memories of glory

tales by the fireside
brave deeds of dead heros
songs of glory


Carpe Diem Haiku Special is dedicated this month to a young Portuguese composer (born in 1089) named:  BrunuhVille.
