Poetry Emotion: Wendy's Window Opens Again

Relentlessly she tossed

Waiting for the boy in green

Still not accepting

He was nothing but a dream

Like a rose the moon bloomed

As the frozen landscape slurred

Streetlamps gathering sounds

... But the mists kept them blurred

A silence same to the houses

Where the English soundly slept

But Wendy heard the noise

As the snow melt sadly wept

Like a raven in a poem

Came on her glass a tapping

She tossed away her covers

Knowing it was happening

At the window a shadow hunkered

Shivering in the chill

But the frost had not taken

The strength of her will

"Wendy," the shadow whispered,

"Are you ready to fly?"

"There is no need whatsoever"

"To bid your parents a last goodbye."

"Who are you?" she asked

"And then I'll ask no more."

"I am the key," Peter answered.

"And I am your Door."

"Let us go to a place,"

He said with a smile.

"I never believed in Destiny,"

"But for you I will awhile."

Poetry Emotion: The Lost Boy's Secret Council

Peter slept deeply that morning

Neverland's sun rising high

The Lost Boy's called a council

Asking desperate questions why

Tinker sat as the chairman

... Their hope she had took

Though no boundary surrounded them

They were pages in her book

Tink took the stage with laughter

Glowing like a flower in bloom

She said, "Boys we have gathered,

To watch Peter seal our doom."

The boy Justice spoke swiftly

"Of what end do you speak?"

he was answered by Prudence

"It's the girl Peter seeks."

"He has lost his sense of a place,"

"That Indians and mermaids do share."

"This girl comes to our Neverland,

"From a place that is Neverthere."

Poetry Emotion: Where The Lost Boys Dwell

Peter landed deftly
Upon hills rolling swirls
Around him gathered Lost Boys
Who threw their arms around the world

The Pan they had proclaimed him
In the trees they gladly dwelt
High above the earth they slept soundly
But on that earth they now knelt

Clothed in skins of nature
They never stood alone
They found it's not brick that builds a house
But blood that builds a home

A cheer rose noisily
As he and the golden fairy descended
Then they cried tears of joy
Fearing their leader's time had been ended

It was Orion who first questioned
While Tinker smirked with glee
"Peter, why have you been leaving?"
"Who is it that you see?"

Peter hung his head
Like a flower that has withered
Tinker then did answer
As a snake that did slither

She said, "Peter has a dilemma,
"And in this your part does not play,
"You live here in Neverland,
"While Peter flirts away."

The Lost Boys looked about in confusion
While the trees grew more shade
Tinker held a laugh inside
Until Pan showed of what he was made

"I will tell you, O' brothers mine,"
"I have gone to see a girl."
"She breathes the air in a land of fools,"
"I intend to bring her here."
