a poem by Stacey Lemonds
A unicorn grazes in the nearby field;
a phoenix overhead refusing to yield
to a swooping griffin pursuing its prey
as the fading night creeps into day.
A fairy giggles from a nearby glen;
a pegases lands with grace, and then
the majestic dragon hoards her gold
from the foolish knight, mighty and bold.
The firelight dances in shadows that linger
as a evil hag points a devilish finger
over the land as the sun's rays weave.
Now tell me, friend, do you believe?
