Introduction to the Poet:

Robin Goodfellow is a student at the University of North Texas. She first became interested in writing when she was three, scribbling all over her parents’ walls and imagining herself in old fairytales while walking in her father’s garden. Since then, she has published poems in the online magazine, Nature Writing, as well as the Haiku Journal, the Healing Poems, and others.



You sailed to the ends of the

earth, the tides drawing you

in, the ocean breeze washing

over you, like



Your hand against the railing,

you look out at the twilight

surrounding you, the midnight

blue reflected across the mirrors

in your



And all the while, you hum

your tunes, singing loudly into

the evening skies, without any

sadness, or any fear. You do

so, though the darkness surrounds

you, the clock winding faster and



Beyond the sights, and beyond

the sounds, you dance on the

ocean waves. You laugh and cry

and sigh, calling upon the wonders

of your own, endless



Family and friends all call for

you, the distant scent of home

within the salt gales. You call

their names and you say you

miss them. They smile and run to

you, arms wide.


Like a troubadour, traveling the midst of time,

you sing your majestic hymnals and rhymes.
