E is for Enchanting

Do you want to write a post about your trip to Europe for the letter E, Jade?

Sure, mom.

Jade, my 15 year old, has always been an artist. She came out of the womb, pen in hand, ready to create. Inclined to be quite independent, she does her own thing as illustrated by her poem below. She agreed to write, just not about Europe. 🙂


May the world disintegrate

and have everything fall apart

i will not care;

for how one regards a heart

And if the world shall disappear

O, forgive me if it does!

remember all that once occurred

of everything that was

All we can ever do

is force ourselves to see

past the clouds, the scattered stars

and relish in the memories

Few will glow, lit by my thoughts

through the foggy grey

but the few that do

will lead you, most certainly, on your way

The Enchanting ones will show;

ones of thought-provoking tales

the luring ones, we musn’t forget;

they shall come as well

And you’ll see this painting you have made

coloured by all you’ve seen

traced and perfected by all your doings

signed by where you’ve been

O, how changed it will feel

and scary it may seem

how far away the enchanting times are

your thoughts may very well deem

But blessed are you

to still have the thoughts

to still see the moments where

you were once thrilled and enchanted by lots

E is for Enchanting

but enchanting stands for what

enchanting is for the memories I’ve shared

and for the ones I have not

We may share our tales of adventure,

my friend, all in due time

but now was where I was asked to write

and not to vaguely put in rhyme

For Enchanting deserves a story

for it’s a story that enchants ourselves

but i’m a petty fool,

and can not write a story of enchanting by myself

So tell me your tales of enchantment

moments when you felt

that rush of immediate adrenaline

that rarely ever melts

Share with me, your definition

of what Enchanting is to you

put it in a story, or like I,

a vague poem too

    What a great poem. Your daughter is very talented. Has she ever been published? My granddaughter has been writing poetry and songs since she was first taught to put letters together to form words.

      She was once published in a students’ book for writing at a national level. Her goal is to be an author. She is an obsessed writer who writes for hours after school each day.

    Jade is unbelievable, Cheryl. Any teacher would love to have her in their classes. Great job. Please pass it on. Good chatting last night. We are heading for the beach this morning. Eunice

    Wow, this is really great writing. Please know that I am not even one for poetry, but this COMPLETELY spoke to me. That is one talented young lady! Great mom-ing, Cheryl!


    • lovetotrav · April 6, 2015

      Thanks so much. I am never one for poetry and as a teacher, I struggle to teach it. Haiku is my thing as it is short and sweet. I will pass on the compliment. Thanks for sharing, Cheryl


I would love to hear from you!
