Puzzle

bright and quick or dark and scary,  she’s the woodlands favorite faery, flitting from her treetop aerie to the forest floor below.  Try to catch her, beam of sunlight, or at night a falling star, laughter ringing, high voice singing, soon you won’t know where you are.  bright and quick or dark and scary, she’s the woodlands favorite faery, flitting from her treetop aerie to the forest floor below.  Follow her through shifting shadows, bright and dark at once is she, as she leads you, you will follow, and your home you’ll never see.  bright and quick or dark and scary, she’s the woodlands favorite faery, flitting from her treetop aerie to the forest floor below.


The Call

Come, she cries, her golden eyes
glistening with entrapped moonlight.
Sleek she is, of midnight hue,
this gentle mistress of the night.

Run with me, through darkness, still,
whose untapped depths we two will plumb,
and dance in measured dignity,
all amongst the forests hum.

Listening, I sigh with grief,
and long, just once, to answer her.
But as I sigh, I feel once more
my humans hand upon my fur.

And purring softly, settle down,
and blink my eyes and close them tight,
to dream again of running free
and dancing under pale moonlight.
