Faeries - Poem by Grace Pasco

Faerie world, a secret place
Where wing-ed things dwell.
Each possess a unique face,
Ones from heaven, ones from hell.

Some are evil. Some are kind.
Beware the consequences.
Don't you wrong them as you greet
And open all your senses.

Many rules have to be obeyed.
Break any.. and in Faerie you stay.

Never eat Faerie food.
Never intake Faerie drink.
Listen, child, and listen good.
With every move, you have to think.

When they ask a simple question..
Answer them by asking.
They will clap to interrogation
For they fear one's unmasking.

Bring iron to avoid abduction
And never sleep in dampen mounds.
Don't give in to the Queen's seduction
From sight or faerie sounds.

Tales of mortals have been told
From north, south, east and west.
In their hearts are stories held.
Each country with their story best.

New born babies kidnapped by the sprites.
Turn to changelings every night.
Half magic, half mortal.
How lucky you are if you found their portal.

They're everywhere, all around,
If you let yourself see.
They're in our imagination.
They're there when you believe.

When they first baby laughed...
The first faerie emerged.
The sound waves were so delicate
The moment, oh so intricate.

Their origin, questionable.
As they put you in a trance.
Their moods are never stable,
But you're tempted to join and dance.

The feeling as though possessed,
Like a dose of endorphines.
Your senses explore the sights,
But is the illusion as it seems?
