The Faeries

The Faeries The faeries, they won't let me sleep They rouse me from my world of dreams To dance and frolic, dart and leap In worlds where nothing is as it seems In the wee hours of the night While all the world is sleeping They share with me their heart's delight To guard it for safekeeping It is in honor that they share With me things best kept hidden and dance through nights without a care and do what I have bidden But there is a price for what they do Long gone my nights of slumber The visit me the long night through In glazes of burnt umber Sometimes they bid me paint their faces Sometimes to scribe their tales Capturing their subtle graces and their lamenting wails I do cherish our convocation Grateful for muses spark and the subsequent conflagration Illuminating the dark -Katie Lennon September 17, 2008 3:37 am
