Hadassah

Fair Hadassah, selected for her beauty,
Favoured by the king, bound to do her duty.
Beautiful of face, with elegance and grace,
For just such a time as this, called to this place.

Sees her nation threatened by a wicked man,
She must make a stand to do what 'ere she can.
Yet if any go uncalled before the king;
To approach means certain death for such a thing.

In dire fear and trepidation she goes in,
Not yet knowing if his favour she will win.
Each dread step takes her closer as she draws nigh.
Will he extend the sceptre, or will she die?




Author's Notes


From The Book of Esther.
It was written in the law of the Medes and the Persians, that no one could approach the king unless prior permission had been granted. Anyone who did so was automatically put to death. The exception would be where the king extended the golden sceptre, so that the appellant could touch it.

I love the story of Esther. Thanks for sharing it with us in this form. Welcome to Faithwriters and thank you for encouraging me through your comment on 'A Call For Repentance'. Have a wonderful weekend. God bless you and I look forward to reading and being blessed by your poetry.
