Lady Illusive

Lady illusive
coming, going, unnoticed
horse trots whisper soft.
Forest winds echo her name
after she has gone
in swirling crescendo songs.
Hymns remembering
her plaintive sighs of longing
wishing to stay on
but unable to linger
just to see his smile.
Every-day decision
love in green grasses
splendid, dew-drenched emotion
or heed bleak warnings
of dangerous illusions
from love's master magician.
