The Crystal Castle

A Poem By Maddi // 9/7/2012

There is actually a story to go with this poem; I had this idea for a story, and then this book said I should write a poem about my idea. So I did! But, um, its not actually a poem, its more like a really short story written in poem style.

******
Elise flung herself down, wondering what to do;
Then imagination sprung with its magic.

Mermaids and dolphins, bubbly laughter
Emerging from the inner souls and lips.

Exquisite little fish, alluring their prey
From the pearly coral.

Twilight spreads its dusky mist over the fantasy world,
Except for under the turquoise of the sea.

There is a melodious hubbub,
As the sea folk go about their amusing business.
Their way is lit by tiny glow worms
Who share their magical gleam with the underwater world,
Even when in the deepest of deep.

A castle stands in the middle of this dominion.
The mer-folks crystal castle.
A crystal castle with secrets beyond
The seashell walls.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths

This is really pretty!

The only thing I would critique is this sentence: Except for under the bluey blueness of the sea.

That's redundant. The sea is already blue so I don't think you should describe the sea as blue.

Haha, I laughed when you said -- "a special thanks to Lucy who has been my private grammar editor! Kidding..." in the notes section. Your very welcome! I hope I've been helpful. :)

Thanks Girls!

Lucy: Yes, I agree with you, Megan (do you mind calling me that?). I hesitated, but I thought it sounded cool...in a sense. Now I've just got to think of something else to put there. :D Oh, and I'm sorry if the comment I just posted on My Testimony made you a bit upset...I'm not very fluent in writing discussion/debate sides, anyway.

Sarah: Thanks :D I tried to rhyme it at the beginning, but it didn't work out for the rest of the poem.

Oh...I dunno. I've got a writer's block at the moment, actually. But I might, since I'm not doing Sam story anymore. :) Thanks for the encouragement!

P.S. I haven't yet changed the line about the bluey-blueness. I decided that I just couldn't think of another way to put it. (maybe it's that writer's block...)

EDIT: Actually, no I will change it. I just realised how really lame it sounded.

Hey!

I can't believe I haven't read this! It was very descriptive and I can't wait to start reading your story!
This is my FAVORITE part:
There is a melodious hubbub,
As the sea folk go about their amusing business.
Their way is lit by tiny glow worms
Who share their magical gleam with the underwater world,
Even when in the deepest of deep.

Great job!!!
