I once knew the queen of the fairies.
She brought me laughter
We danced together in the sunlight
in the shadows.
She could make it rain
set the stars in the night sky.
She would build
brew tea laced with faith
bake bread filled with hope.
Her body would shiver at my touch
her love-light would envelope me.
I was happy then
the spell was broken
I told her that she had lost her magic.
So she packed up her secrets
she was the queen of the fairies
could never lose her magic.
It was I who could no longer see it.
