Photo courtesy Plumas Arts t SHE WALKS ALONG (A FAIRY TALE) She walks along the water's edge alone Then stops and looks beyond the crashing wave To see a land of gold and marbled stone Where lives a mighty prince both bold and brave. He rides his steed among the fields and leas Then stops and looks beyond a craggy rock To see a shock of sheep where grow no trees And then an angel tending to the flock• She looks away and drops her steady stare; He bows his head and heaves a mighty sigh. They turn to see each other standing there, And marvel that their dream could be so nigh. No far-off prince and no angelic lass are they, But in the flesh like you and me with feet of clay.
