A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Will O’ Wisp


Frizzy haired
She meandered into their midst.

will o wisp

Did she feel lonely
As she blew in the wind?
Did she miss her many brethren so?

Was she, perhaps,
Taking the road less travelled?

Or perchance-

Did she simply want to fit in?

I simply cannot
Imagine why
That little feather-soft
Fairy-winged willy
Flitted about,
On a hot, burning afternoon.

Alone, all alone.

For the fact
That she saw row upon row
Sprightly young
White-uniformed kids
Goggling at her.

The delight
The utter delight
Was when she
Homed right in,
Into loving, gentle hands

Which caressed her
To music of oooohhs and aaahhhs
Letting her go!

Such a beautiful lesson
The teacher learnt
That hot afternoon!

  2. A wisp-o’-willow
    Wafted down below
    Kids thrilled
    Teacher stilled
    When, reverently, they let it go!
