Fairy isles

And now we be in the fairy isles
Not on the Ocean-Sea
But on the golden roof of heavens
That blinds
With diadems and jewels glittering
And night-dews' eyes.

    I can imagine some mythic hero, intrepid and greedy, landing on these fairy isles to steal a fortune in celestial jewelry. But to his dismay the jewelry turns to dust when he returns to earth: it was not meant to be possessed by mortals. Then again a different kind of voyager who harbors no unholy desires lands, takes none of the treasures but rejoices at his discovery, gives thanks to the gods and returns to earth and is blessed with inner peace and outer happiness, both of which he can spiritually transfer to other mortals. That's the real treasure! (Report) Reply

    Lovely! Intriguing and enchanting! Leaves the reader clamoring for more. Great lead in for a longer poem of whimsy and magic! (Report) Reply
