When I Hear “L’Amour Toujours”

 When I Hear “L’Amour Toujours”

Long ago song
His song
My crying song
Now faded
Like Chretien de Troyes.

I reach out to ghosts
But the ouija board
Gives a busy signal
It’s the only way we know
They were ever here

I was twenty once
It was awful
To be
So
confused.

But
I would like
To do it all over
Like hunting toads
Under Friendly’s doghouse
Until the day I found the snake.

So pour me another
Bacardi Breezer
Or a Cheeky Vimto
And let me tell you
About the good old days
When pain was simple
And joy was knowing
Whom the grail served.

What Rose LaCroix lacks in recognition, she makes up for in versatility and staying power. Her first published novel, "Basecraft Cirrostratus," has been in print for almost 11 years. She writes both fiction and nonfiction, speculative and historical. Some of her medieval history research has been published on Britannica.
