I Saw A Princess In A Field (Or Did I Not?) - Poem by Devanshi Khetarpal

I travelled across mounts and vales,
And saw neither folk that meets
The wants of my tales.
I travelled far and wide
Until the sun ate me feets.
And imposed heat I couldn't abide.
Hail the mighty sunshine bright!
As I saw the fields go.
O soldier! Wear thy armour tight
Or it may feed on you.
I found none- no comrade, no foe.
And walked for a mile or two.
Until I saw a princess (did I?)
Guised in a crimson gown
And whose eyes did defy
The greatest beauty of all.
For I hath not sought a lass in town
Who could match her call.
And her lips such that one kiss
Could make a man sink
And give him the taste of pious bliss.
And further face, I could not eye
For she whisked off in a blink.
Was she a dream? (Or so think I) .
I still remember the eye and brow
And the lip that went deep
And satin skin, I wish time would allow
To adore for an eternity.
Or whilst I can weep,
Why not? It's shattered fraternity.
