A poetic journey through my mind

Childling moon

whisper, giggle, prank and play,
the changelings now will have their day,
beware the mortal taken in
by childish laugh and friendly grin,
they’ll whirl him through enchanted night,
and leave him lost in mornings light,
baffled, flustered and confused,
exhausted, hungry and bemused,
but somehow lonely for the sound
of little footsteps on the ground,
and childish voices raised in glee,
footloose, all, and fancy free.

  1. From the title on down, I adore this. Reminds me, just a bit, of Yeats. šŸ™‚ Needs a Froud image to go with it.

      *claps* Exactly! Wish I could find one I wouldn’t feel guilty about using. *nods* And thank you for the compliment. “The Stolen Child” was one of my very favorite poems…still is, but moreso when I was little. “Come away, O human child!
      To the waters and the wild With a faery, hand in hand,
      For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”

        Heard Loreena McKennitt’s version? I listen to her because of her lovely voice and way with bringing poetry to music. Find it if you haven’t heard it yet. šŸ™‚

          Oooh, cool! I love all her stuff, but her Lady of Shallot and the Highwayman are some of my faves. Will -definitely- look for that! *ear-scritches*
