She spins through the moonlit glades.
Shadows flit, the twilight fades,
raindrops strike the earth like bells,
bluebells sway, the river swells.
Owls circle on silent wings,
beaks upturned like lofty kings,
silk moths join her fleeting dance:
her first, last and only chance
to feel her heart in her breast,
to feel the life she’s been blessed
before she must steal away
and return to the Land of the Fae.
