What do you See? March 5, 2019 – The Key


It was a key unlike others she had seen

It glowed in her hand

Sparkled in her fingers.

Could it be what unlocked her heart?

She had found it difficult to

Entertain thoughts of love.

The knight Anton had asked her to the ball

But she immediately spurned his overtures.

She contemplated the fair-headed young man

Who spoke simply, had no airs or graces,

He was as she imagined a good man to be.

Why was she unable to respond to him?

The key suddenly tingled in her grasp

It sent her a confidence she’d not felt before.

She was glad she had asked the knight Anton

To return his visit.
