Llyfnant

Under the yellow-green of sunlit beech

between banks of bluebells' hazy blue

where supple crosiers of new fern reach             

over verdant moss still damp with dew

a grassy lane runs beside the river

 

In the mystic quiet of a leafy dome

of grey bark ash, beech and mighty oak

a far cuckoo calls the dryads home

but we pass unseen by woodland folk

'til tylwyth teg w...

Fairies

 

Like grains of rice, her love it grows;

Forms a crown from lush meadows.

Beneath their skulls with blooming fields,

Dandelions caress skin, living shields.

Arrays of light pour onto ivory,

Little, brown connect-the-dots scatter accordingly.

Scaled next doors fence, then over ours
with a fishing net and two jam jars
 
Then I crept up…..I caught the two

You don’t believe in fairies?…… Is it that you don’t?…. Or wont?
 
Yes I believe in goblins, trolls and fairies
And pink and yellow polkerdot canaries
 
I believe in wizards and dragons and magic
And fairytales both joyful and…….. tragic
 
I can conjure them in my own mind
See them...
