A Poem

Walking among the trees

Dressed in diaphanous silk

A maiden in blue

A Queen among her kind

In a stately grace

She stands in rosy innocence

With a soul full of ancient wisdom

Stalking that which would harm

That which she is sworn to protect

Fae lights her way

Through the dark paths

Worshipping at her feet

Crowning her with a ring of forest blooms

Announcing their allegiance

To the Lady of the Wood

The Fairy Monarch on the Holt

Behold the Guardian of the Forest

Mother Combs

Come near, sit a spell, and listen to tales of old as I sit and rock by my fire. I'll serve you some cocoa and cookies as I tell you of the time long gone by when your Greats-greats once lived.
