An Ode, To Xander
So, after I posted the first drabble in my journal, vampirefever responds with "This was really nice, wonder what the ode said...".

Can you see the bloody great bunny that got dumped in my lap? can you? I'm trying to think drabbles, and half my brain is trying to write an ode, in a William-like fashion, but filtered through over a hundred years experience of love and other stuff.

This is what happened...


An Ode, To Xander

That precious boy,
who holds my dead, unbeating heart in labour-callused hands;
That youth, no more a child,
who faces death at every dusk but neither shies away nor hides;
The man, full-grown,
Who still is but a child within his heart, so swift with loving;
My mate, blood shared between us both,
a bond no one could ever hope to break.
My one true love,
whose death will make me watch the rising sun with hope in heart;
That it might take this demon,
if not to heaven, mayhap to a lesser hell where angels visit,
That I might see again,
that precious boy, the man full-grown, my mate, my love.

::sinister chuckle and twiddle of mustache::

Ah ha my dear so you were seduced by my evil cute liddle fluffy bunny.

And can I just say WOW, I'm so glad you were. What an amazing piece of poetry. I think William's days of being a bloody awful poet are well behind him, he's definitely developed talent. Xander must be the muse he was always waiting for.

Would it sound very egotistical of me to say that I couldn't force myself to write intentionally bad poetry? ::gigglez::

Thank you for setting the bunny on me. {{{hugs}}}

That's lovely!

Can I please add it to the Master List and later archive it for Xander Appreciation Day?

Thank you, and yes, I'd be delighted to have it included in the archive. :o)
