surreal forest – dark and deep

 

Pathlessness – dark, deep,

fairies’ weird wild forest home

bewildering knights

 

Many ogres seen

in seldom travelled deep woods –

long labyrinthine hours

 

Wayward villages –

wily witches dream-beguile

slumbering peasants

 

Doors lock, frightened bolts –

wind-wails drag distant shades near,

branches beckoning

 

Crossroads monsters wait –

here are strange cold clinging things

knights know before sleep

 

Promises kept – on far side of ever impossible forest glade.
