BALLAD OF ANNALEE

a poem by Lee Emmett, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

in the forest lives a girl
whose name is Annalee
and every spring she gathers flowers
around the linden tree

Annalee is eighteen years
hair reaches to her waist
and all the lads admire her so
but none is to her taste

one day through the forest comes
a handsome young man free
who gazing on her lovely face
full-smitten becomes he

Marcus wanting maiden fair
asks Annalee to be
his bride and ever-loving wife
beneath the linden tree

Annalee and Marcus bold
love flower and honey-bee
and laugh with son and daughter
hearts happy and carefree
