I have not yet begun to fight!- John Paul Jones

Little emerald leaf and little auburn branch
Connected to a larger one
The larger one supported me
And cared for me throughout it all
Through the crystal tears when they brought her home
And how distant he was from all
From the tinkling laughter of my little voice
When I was lifted high above you almost touching the stars
You were always there for me and I for you
But now another has claimed my heart
'Tis the sea, wild and true
Nevermore shall I walk unburdened
'Neath your leafy bosom
For now I shall walk on crystal sands
And head to the melody of the sea.

The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by Legolas' Song for The Two Towers when Gladerial warns him to stay away form the sea.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

 I remember his song.....This is such a nice interpretation...though unique if you hadn't said I wouldn't have figured...I like it.
