Sanctuary--By Mary A. Couch--United States


Within the glen a fairy ring,
and there the child did lie.
She heard the fairies sing
beneath a moonlit sky.

Safe from the hunter’s rage,
she slept peaceful in the dark.
Morning came, turned a page,
the child awoke; a lark.

  1. This is a very envisioning poem. I really enjoyed reading this awesome piece this evening. I used to live in Noblesville back in '83. I bet it looks different now. Great work.

  2. Mary,
    This poem is simply beautiful. The first part of t reminds me of my poem, "The Elves", published in May's poems. I enjoyed reading it!
    Your friend,

    1. Oops, The Elves was in March's issue, my mistake.

    2. A lovely breath of fresh air Mary. I so enjoyed this poem! Aloha, Connie
