The Green Man/ Proudly Accepted by the Blinking Cursor Magazine!

I think enough time has passed that I can share "The Green Man" poem with you. This is the one that was published by the literary magazine, "Midnight Screaming."

The Green Man

“Run away with me,” said the spirit of the wood
as he whispered down my neck through the trees.
I shivered and shrank, wishing I could,
And leaned into the breeze.

“Why won’t you come?” he asked in my ear,
as he warmed my back with the sun.
I stretched and arched, but still had fear,
Oh, I wanted to succumb!

“Just join me now,” said that cheery sprite,
as he caressed me with cloudy shade,
and how, oh how, I wished I might
give up this earthly glade!

My poem, "Housework," was accepted by a British Literary magazine called, "The Blinking Cursor." To date, that means I've had four poems accepted at various places. Thank you to all those editors willing to give me a chance!

    I had such an obsession with the United Kingdom; that I moved here to find magic inspiration in this 'green and pleasant land'. The magic grows.
    Thank you for sharing such a delightful poem.
    With respect and kind wishes, Gary
