Fairytales Are Alive And Well In Tales Like These


A young man with magic abilities
resurrecting people from death
brought back his childhood
sweetheart

But once having touched her and
she’s alive, he cannot touch her
again lest she die, that is the way
of his life-giving magic

When she fell he could not catch
her, only when they were both
wearing beekeeper’s protective
clothing, could they waltz

To the music of Strauss –
fairytales are alive and well
on television in tales like
these…

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
