My friend Cecilia is a talented poet, so I insisted on showcasing some of her work. Most of her poems were about some dork she fell madly in love with, but not all of them, thank goodness! So here is Cecilia's poem and an introduction from the poetess herself.
Okay people, this is my poem. It has two parts. The first is
about a man (you can use your imagination and say he is a knight in
shining armor) who falls in love over night with a beautiful "Fay" or
fairy (you know a la "Belle Dame Sans Merci but in this poem she doesn't
even give him the time of day). It is called By the Bay of Star Crossed
Lovers because it all takes place by a beautiful bay surrounded by a
forest. The man dies there and in the second part of the Poem, the fairy
is old and lamenting his loss in the same spot while she explains what
happened to a visitor from a far away land. The fairy at the end is sad
(sad? Can you say "weak adjective") because she passed up her chance with
the man. Note: in the second part "eternity" is death. Any further
questions? E-mail me at MINERVADAMSELLE@Juno.com. Enjoy!

Do you know where he could be?
"Sh- for as we speak we just may see
Yes I had a love like he
