Camelot By The Shore ~ 09.13.04

I see them walking along the shoreline
The waves lapping at their feet
Like the cover of a dusty old romance novel
Her gown is a deep green
His armor glints in the sunlight
They are Camelot come to life
I watch them as they stop and gaze out at the waves
Holding each others hands
I wonder what they speak of
Alone there on the sand
As I wander along the shoreline
I watch their image shimmer
Fading back into the past of some unwritten history
My sigh is unheard by the ocean
As I turn to leave the shore
Does love like this still linger
In this modern fast paced world

  1. I’m watching Starz series Camelot now, your poem is an absolute match with my view of how love was back then … hidden in the edges of the Guinevere’s gown and the Arthur’s sword …
