Vanity: Profile Of An Elf (A Fantasy Poem)

by Han M Greenbarg

Robes of white

Hair of gold

Before a mirror

Sapphire eyes

Lean and poised

Without blemish

Pale skin

Never aging

Demure face

Pain of beauty

Cost of grace

Peacemaking soul

Gaze averted

From war

Stainless attire

Polished form

Retreats in the night

To pure starlight

Iridescent waters

Beneath a full moon

Reciting verse and song

Candles in the trees

For creatures

Who seek perfection

In each and every form

Hold to vanity

And satisfaction of the self

Whispers in the mirror

Cannot be ignored

By the tall and beautiful

 Vanity Seeking Elves
