Faerie Dance


I've seen the Faerie dance
  by candlelight's flicker.
Gossamer wisps of shadow's flight
  moving soundlessly this night.
Hither and yon - softly aglow
  to music I might never know.

Voice just naturally hushed,
  breath held tight -
so as not to disturb
  nor halt the step
    of gentle thought -
      the Faerie's flight.

Around and round and around still more
  rising lightly, falling sure -
    only to slow til a single sight.
A gentle fragment - yet unbroken light,
  the following eyes mistfully adore
    touched by the touching -
      full with the nothing,
the mind adrift in soft pixie glow.

The show but a moment's reverie,
  a simple lifetime's eternity -
knowing it never was, nor were, nor will...
  still - I saw the Faerie dance.
