I once knew the queen of the fairies

I once knew the queen of the fairies.

She brought me laughter

and

magic.

We danced together in the sunlight

and

in the shadows.

She could make it rain

and

set the stars in the night sky.

She would build

a fire

and

brew tea laced with faith

and

bake bread filled with hope.

Her body would shiver at my touch

and

her love-light would envelope me.

I was happy then

but

the spell was broken

and

I told her that she had lost her magic.

So she packed up her secrets

and

went away.

But

she was the queen of the fairies

and

could never lose her magic.

It was I who could no longer see it.
