Last night I dreamed that I had seen
The gates to the land of faerie
But I held back and entered not
Because I was too wary.
I wonder how it could have been
If I had seen that place
To walk among the little folk
And meet them face to face.
I could have seen the faerie Queen
Her court and all the rest
But just to enter through the gates
I could not pass the test.
Next time I’ll gather up my strength
And boldly enter in
And once inside I just might stay
And come here not again.
