Enchanted Child

Bright queen of woodland denizens
Of mythological reknown:
Your palace is an ancient oak;
A wreath, your crown.

All sparkling eyes and impish smile,
Unslippered feet and windblown hair,
You brave the wilds of the unknown
With spirits fair;

With fairies dancing, hand in hand,
You sing their chant in airy voice;
The forest echoes your delight --
The trees rejoice;

They whisper secrets in the breeze
And, listening, you cup your ears
While playful zephyrs tug your dress
Then disappear ...

The sunbeams dappling through the leaves
Leave fairy-kisses on your face.
Your presence makes this quiet glen
A hallowed place;

Enchanted child, I must believe
These fancies are no less than true:
For there, reflected in your eyes,
I see them too.

"Nunc lento sonitu dicunt, morierus"
(Now as I hear this bell tolling softly for another, it says to me, "Thou must die.")

Thank you all, and thanks especially to my own "enchanted child", Kahlan, who inspired me to this.

Long live my little faerie queen!
