Wild Blue Roses (A Paradelle)

Wild Blue Roses  (A Paradelle)


In the Wild Blue Roses Castle the cobalt princess dwells
In the Wild Blue Roses Castle the cobalt princess dwells
Imprisoned in a purple haze
Imprisoned in a purple haze
The purple princess dwells in the cobalt roses
Imprisoned in a wild blue castle haze

Deep within her hidden heart a love-song ever plays
Deep within her hidden heart a love-song ever plays
Brightens midnight moments like a sunny summer day
Brightens midnight moments like a sunny summer day
A midnight love-song plays deep within her hidden day
Ever brightens sunny moments like a summer heart

The stained-glass window scatters pastel-colored lights
The stained-glass window scatters pastel-colored lights
Fairies twinkling in the darkened chamber
Fairies twinkling in the darkened chamber
The pastel-colored chamber scatters darkened fairies
Stained-glass twinkling in the window lights

The stained-glass princess plays in wild blue midnight
Imprisoned in her pastel-colored moments
Deep within the purple chamber dwells a darkened love-song
A sunny heart ever brightens hidden lights
Like a summer day scatters window fairies
The castle roses twinkling in the cobalt haze

I love the structure, the diction, the syntax-- everything! The picture is awesome too. For whatever reason, my fist association, after the first 2 seconds of reading the poem, was of Keats's "Eve of Saint Agnes," with the princess trapped in the fortress, awaiting her lover. Beautiful, whimsical, and enchanting read!

Oooh! I never have tried (or even heard of) this type of poetry and I think I'd really like to try it. What are the rules for writing one of these? And if I try one... will you critique it for me? I'm so pressed for time and find it difficult to be online for fun lately, but I'm glad I came here and found this treasure!

Bravo Nancy,

I have never seen this structure before. I love it. I guess you really must concentrate on your words. You have me excited. Now, of course I must write my own. Can you pass along any hints?
Technically, it looked flawless to me. All the words were correctly chosen and it rolled off my tongue like a Brahms lullaby.

Great Work!

Nancy: you've created a rich tapestry of medieval imagery. Beautifully constructed and with a lucid rhythmic flow. A wonderful Paradelle. The whole thing swept me along right into a mythical fairy world! Love the picture of the manor house too.
