A Grandmother’s Warning

grandmother said

now let me tell  you a tale of a young man with hair flaxen and fair

rosy cheeks and bright blue eyes, indeed his handsomeness was beyond compare

when he opened his mouth to sing, he put all the birds in the woods to shame

he wrote poems so divine, they said from God his inspiration came

now my child, tell me, what sort of character is this?

learn now before you fall into a painful abyss

the girl answered

a prince, with all the wealth and fame the world has to offer?

or a knight, renowned as a brave and valiant sir?

grandmother shook her head

either answer could be right,

but i think he’s a demon, one you’ll have to fight
