Monday’s Poem

The Heart of White and Green
By Llykael Dert-Ethrae
Ooooh, she's a merry young lady from Illarien 
Who carries the joys of ladies and men 
Hair shining so bright in the light of the moon 
Freely sharing her love – oh my what a boon!

So quiet and soft she darts among trees 
All animals swarm and never do flee. 

Sheee's the friend upon which we always can lean 
Oh she's the great heart of pure white and green! 

Soooo with hair like the snow and eyes like a leaf 
And a soul so pure it washes all grief 
She bounds all about showing kindness to all 
Wildly dancing with us – oh my what a ball! 

Her smile so wide it's bright as the sun 
An aura as warm as a freshly baked bun. 

Sheee's the friend upon which we always can lean 
Oh she's the great heart of pure white and green! 

Allll beasts and lush plants she bids them goodnight 
Her singing sweet tunes sets their dreams alight 
She's skipping through woods never snapping a bark 
Aptly flitting is she - oh my what a lark! 

It's plain to us all as you can now see 
She adores them as much as you and me. 

Sheee's the friend upon which we always can lean 
Oh she's the great heart of pure white and green!

You may remember Llykael Dert-Ethrae’s poetry from a couple of weeks ago. Llykael Dert-Ethraeis a writer based in York, The Heart of White and Green is one of three poems by Llykael, it is from a series of works concerning a character named Willow who features in Llykael’s writing. I hope you enjoyed this poem you can find Llykael’s previous Monday poem here.

  1. “Her smile so wide it’s bright as the sun” I really like this line, as I feel when people smile it does bring a warmth to their face and a warmth to your heart.
