I lay low after a heavy day’s toil

Adrift on a blissful carriage of dreams

Floating through the skies, hung by silken coils

Traverse the night on gossamer moonbeams

 

Of velvety valleys and glistening wells

I marvel the kaleidoscopic views

Petite fairies emerge from fresh bluebells

As I embark on my magical cruise

 

Stumbling upon a charming fairy ball

Fairies and satyrs dancing in merry

Music flows, as singing mushrooms enthrall

While sweet treats are served with wine and cherry

 

Fatigue swept as stars sang their final tune

I fell asleep with the far-setting moon
