Poetry Challenge: Cascade

This week, Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge uses a form of poetry called a Cascade. This form of poetry is four stanzas of three lines. The first line becomes the last line of the second stanza. The second line is the last line of the third stanza. The third line is the final line of the fourth stanza.
Here are the prompt words for the challenge: cascade, tresses, eagle, abandon, rippling, and silence.
Please stop by Jane’s blog to read her poem and to find links to the other entries in the comment section: https://janedougherty.wordpress.com/2016/06/01/poetry-challenge-33-silent-cascade/

Forest Queen

Proudly, she stands in watchful silence
Her dark tresses rippling in the wind
Majestic forest queen
An eagle soars overhead
She raises one hand in salute
Proudly, she stands in watchful silence
Her post, she will never abandon
She stands firm in the gathering storm
Her dark tresses rippling in the wind
A cascade of water rushes down
To worship at her feet
Majestic forest queen
