Keepsake

Six Sentence Story word prompt – Keepsake

There was a poet living in poverty. His only possession was his words.

He was secretly in love with the shoemaker's daughter. So, everyday he wrote a love poem and whispered to her as a keepsake.

She was born tender eyed and was not married even way passed childbearing age. But all the days of her life, she was happy especially when she saw how beauty she was in the mirror.

  1. I too was grabbed by the sentence, ‘His only possession was his words.’ In clever hands, words can be so powerful, for good and ill. Happy for the shoemaker’s daughter they were for the good. 🙂
