Somewhere In Fantasy Land Marsh Goblin - Poem by Heather Burns

Marsh Goblin is his name
he is from wealth and fame

ever so handsome and sweet
to look at such a treat

Hair is black eyes are too
oh, so nice looking at you

Lives in the marshes deep
this is where he falls asleep

Woven reeds worn for his cloak
he is never one to gloat

He is alone waiting there
for a lovey girl oh so fair

    I hope the marsh goblin gets his dame
    Dark or brown or maybe a little fair
    Because this life is an unfair game
    What you mostly get is just tread bare
