There is magic in the forest-
In the sparkle of the dew
And in the eyes of maidens-
So innocent and blue.
There is magic when the setting sun
Does spread a tapestry-
With just as little effort
As we spread a cloth for tea..
There is magic when the rainbow
In it’s prismatic splendor
Paints a sky in pastel hues-
Monet could never render.
And science in it’s bigotry-
Endeavors to explain-
In minute, boring detail-
Each and every thing.
They set it down in weighty tomes-
Which no one ever reads-
Nor comphrehends it if he does-
Ah! What noteworthy deeds.
They tell me I am foolish-
A dreamer! Quite insane-
Expalin it how you wish to-
There’s magic just the same.
There’s magic in the winter wind-
Which play a banshee’s pipes-
And fan the flames of Scottish lore
Those long, cold Highland nights.
Foolish? Do you call it?
This idle evening’s banter-
Ah, fool! I doubt ye even ken-
The tale o’ “Tam O’ Shanter”
Nor poor Tam’s ride a winter’s eve
Out in the woeful dark-
Nor ‘Alloway’s old haunted kirk-
Nor lovely Cutty Sark?
An’ faith! the tales o’ little folk-
Their mischeif and their pranks
The awful end which come to those
Who dare invade their ranks...
A foolish lot you tell me, eh?
And laugh this fool to shame-
He who laughs last, laughs loudest-
There’s magic just the same!

Live large, people!

I like your magic, indeed, Sir, and join you in saluting the winsomeness of the belief in it.

And fare thee well, my only luve !
And fare thee well a while !
And I will come again, my luve !
Though it were ten thousand mile.

(from A Red, Red, Rose. Robbie Burnes )

Meaning ? I'll be back to read some more of your work.

Violence is an irrepressible outburst of fear.
Master your fears and find peace.

Delightful! You brought magic to my night.

It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
