The Harp of Gold by Carol Eliassen



Back in elementary school probably around 5th or 6th grade I wrote about Vietnam.  I remember the substance of the story/poem but can only remember these specific words.  It was about the true love of a girl whose boyfriend or husband was killed in Vietnam.  I think from what I remember it had something to do with a girl running up a hill and opening a gate and then falling down and seeing the harp with the inscription.  I had a wild imagination then and still do.  I just need to write it all down.  

A friend or one I thought was a friend back in elementary school asked if she could borrow my stories/poems ( I had many) so she could copy them and would give them back.  Unfortunately, they are lost forever because she refused to give them back to me.  Maybe that is why I like to publish things online now because they will hopefully always be there!  Hope you enjoy reading.  I'm thinking about using this part I remember and writing an online story.  Check back for more.   

There was a harp pure of gold
A foreign made kind
It said Vietnam

Queen Eldora is banished by her husband the King from her immortal home to live among the human race as a mortal woman. A miracle occurs during the birth of her Granddaughter that sets her free and drives her to find out the true reason of her betrayal.   Along the way she begins to understand what motivates her and stays true to herself when it comes to love and forgiveness even while facing her greatest enemy. And so it begins:   The Birth of Mazzy The Mermaid Princess  by Author Carol Eliassen Chapter One: The Crossroads of Baku   Figure 2: Artwork by Artist Stephanie Broker   “Eternity begins and ends with the ocean’s tides” - Unknown Author      Something was different today. The tides of the Caspian Sea seemed to sway in perfect rhythm. I cannot fully understand it or describe it in perfect detail. Trust me it was different. It seemed that something perfect and magical was happening in the seas below. I did not know what but whatever i

What About You?

What About You? You may have free will,  that is true. Picking your path  without a clue.  You look to your own device knowing  you will only gain the world.  I can't emphasize enough that  in the end it will fade like a mural.  Your eyes are closed as  the world draws you in.  I can pray for you, but without God  my words just melt in the wind.  You sow what you reap.  We all do, be it for good or evil.  The difference you may ask  is not what equals.  The difference is God,  the rapture is true,  we shall ascend, but  what about you?  There is a slim chance  on a tribulation date,  you will have to sacrifice your body  on God's holy slate.  You can ask him to save your soul  in a world filled with fool's gold. Your reward will be to enter the gates  made of pearls but void of hate!  Eternity is my goal.  I want to take you as I go.  Don't hesitate to preach the love  as the Holy Spirit makes you bold.  Go in true love. Go in peace.  Listen to the WORD  and eternal lif

I Can't See You

I can't see you,   but I know you are there.  I feel you with my hands  when I touch what you have made.  The world is full of your creations, we should all be amazed! I can't see you,   but I know you are there.  When I'm alone,  I know you are with me  I feel your presence in the air, the water, the breeze in the trees, the aroma from the flowers, and the miracle of the tiny seeds.  I can't see you,   but I know you are there.   I see the birds fly across the sky,  I see the water move in waves,  I see what your hands have made I even looked in the mirror and saw the miracle you molded in my mother's womb. I can't see you,   but I know you are there. I hear the birds chirping outside,  they are music flying in the sky.  No need to clothe or feed  for your hand I do not see  keeps them filled, clothed, and free. I can't see you,   but I know you are there.  The creatures so small,  and under a microscope detailed in a complex look  which only a Creator coul
