English #frapalymo Day 4 – Rapunzel

Rivers of gold
float softly out the window
whispering down the tower walls

A chance meeting
with a hapless hero
friendship turns to love

Pools of gold
lie peacefully in the grass
waiting for a lovers touch

Undisclosed liaisons
hope turns to promise
for so much more than solitude

Nests of gold
create cocoons of serenity
to hold love forever

Zealous hearts
create a pact
united in a common goal

Eddies of gold
spin merrily around
singing of love divine

Lovers reunite
after tempests threaten
together evermore


#frapalymo is hosted by @FrauPaulchen and is translated by Bee on her blog Just Fooling Around with Bee. Today’s prompt is „rapunzel, rapunzel“.

I struggled with this one because for some reason I decided to re-tell the story in poetry form; and once I started, it was hard to let it go.  However, after a few stanzas, I realized I had started to spell Rapunzel and once I realized that, I was able to finish the acrostic poem.  I’m just hoping it’s not as terrible as I think it is at this moment. 🙂


Feel free to play along.  Here are Bee’s suggestions:

  1. read the translation of @FrauPaulchen’s prompt
  2.  write your English (German if you can/want to) poem on your blog and tag it with “English #frapalymo.”
  3. use the “English #frapalymo” picture if you want to
  4. set a link to the translated prompt here on Bee’s blog
  5. visit other links posted here and if you want to/can those posted with the hashtag #fapalymo on Twitter
  6. The Bee will post your link to the German #frapalymo and translate for you if you want to. Now go, create and have lots of fun!

  1. Oh wow. I didn’t realise it is an acrostic. I love the repeating mention of gold. It gives the stanzas a lovely connection besides the letters that spell Rapunzel.
