I wrote a little poem about a wishing well, let me know what you think!

Wishing Well

Tales of the withered old wishing well

Tales of the withered old wishing well And the powers with which it came

Tales of the withered old wishing well And the powers with which it came Appear in tales told across the world

Tales of the withered old wishing well And the powers with which it came Appear in tales told across the world An enchanted well granting wishes so they claim

Travelers appeared from near and far

Travelers appeared from near and far Some wishes small, while others grand

Travelers appeared from near and far Some wishes small, while others grand They’d toss a coin, their eyes screwed shut

Travelers appeared from near and far Some wishes small, while others grand They’d toss a coin, their eyes screwed shut And wish and wish, to the well they’d command

But unbeknownst to them

But unbeknownst to them Those who closed their eyes to wish

But unbeknownst to them Those who closed their eyes to wish Swimming within the wishing well

But unbeknownst to them Those who closed their eyes to wish Swimming within the wishing well A kindred spirit with magic to give

For hundreds of years, she answered their calls

For hundreds of years, she answered their calls Helping who she could from down in the dark

For hundreds of years, she answered their calls Helping who she could from down in the dark Her magic brought miracles, gave life and joy

For hundreds of years, she answered their calls Helping who she could from down in the dark Her magic brought miracles, gave life and joy Her granted wishes gave the hopeless a hopeful spark

But as the years went by, her magic slowly dwindled

But as the years went by, her magic slowly dwindled Disappeared with the wells stolen reserve

But as the years went by, her magic slowly dwindled Disappeared with the wells stolen reserve Human greed wasted her magic away

But as the years went by, her magic slowly dwindled Disappeared with the wells stolen reserve Human greed wasted her magic away And the wishing well dried without a single concern

With her magic gone, wishes became lost with the wind

With her magic gone, wishes became lost with the wind She could hear their prayers, hold their offerings still

With her magic gone, wishes became lost with the wind She could hear their prayers, hold their offerings still But with no way to grant them, she simply sat by

With her magic gone, wishes became lost with the wind She could hear their prayers, hold their offerings still But with no way to grant them, she simply sat by And legends faded just as they always will

Visitors have since stopped coming

Visitors have since stopped coming And her spirit grows ever lonely with the years

Visitors have since stopped coming And her spirit grows ever lonely with the years No magic to help, no offers come with calls

Visitors have since stopped coming And her spirit grows ever lonely with the years No magic to help, no offers come with calls The well’s dried up so all she has are her ever growing tears

She cries for the girl who tosses away her only coin

She cries for the girl who tosses away her only coin Tears fall as she wishes a wish that can’t come true

She cries for the girl who tosses away her only coin Tears fall as she wishes a wish that can’t come true She cries for the little boy who wishes do be strong

She cries for the girl who tosses away her only coin Tears fall as she wishes a wish that can’t come true She cries for the little boy who wishes do be strong And wishes herself for their wishes to be too

After all, a wishing wells not a wishing well

After all, a wishing wells not a wishing well If the wishes are never granted

After all, a wishing wells not a wishing well If the wishes are never granted But no matter the wishes thrown to the wishing well

After all, a wishing wells not a wishing well If the wishes are never granted But no matter the wishes thrown to the wishing well To the wisher, may never be handed.
