The Lady

The lady longed for a castle,
a mansion filled with beauty.
He took her into his home
and enthroned her on his heart.
 
The lady then desired admiration…
that effort be strengthened by others.
He granted her his own favor, others’
praise for him dressed her quite finely.
 
She took to work with her hands
wearing fingers rough and callous.
He took over by strength of his hands,
and taught her his songs of gratitude.
 
She built  strong walls, gates, with thick bars.
Tearing them apart, he kept her safe…
Gently surrounded her with a village—
a dwelling of peace, love and rest.
 

I'd love to hear from you! :)
