"If someone were to pay you 10 cents for every kind word you ever spoke and collect 5 cents for every unkind word, would you be rich or poor?"

Here I am in the dawn of night
Searching for the princess that comes in bright
Show yourself you princess of the moon
For I come for thee with a hearth so gloom
Touch my hand you silk from above
So I may feel your skin so soft as a dove
Play for me your beautiful harp
So I may hear with ears your song so sharp
Share with me your light so bright
That I may see with glee a creation so right
Take pity on thee you daughter of Aphrodite
So I may come in a range with a chance to strike.
I look at you but blinded I am
For I am merely a son to Sam.

Well done! Especially since you weren't even inspired by a person! :D

I love this! It is absolutly charming! The last two and the first two especially good, which is a very good quality to have. My favorite of them all, though, is "Play for me your beautiful harp/ So I may hear with ears your song so sharp." Absolutly wonderful!

Could you check out some of my stuff? Please and thanks!
