The Unicorns: The Land of Olde Fairie

All children love Unicorns, come and take a look the Unicorns at Amazon

I won't believe in Unicorns,

I learned the truth today

The dreams that come, with snowy manes

Are stars that fade away.

-

There's no such thing as Unicorns

I now believe that's true

The magic caught in equine eyes

Is not for me and you.

-

The mystery of the snow white beast

The alicorn aglow

Is only meant for ageless minds

Not for us to know.

-

Behind the wintry darkness

And twilights special light,

The harsh bright glare of middle day

Blinds mortals from it's sight.

-

I once believed in Unicorns, felt special,

Warm, you know

-

But twilights strange and ethereal,

One touch and it will go

Fade back into the darkness, to rest behind the veil

Then melt back into never,

Where magic still prevails.

-

One foot I left in twilight,

One touch of warm caress

Of fine white down of horse's mane

A smell of magic's flesh.

-

To taste the scent of summer

Warm spice and magic furl

The lights of Fairie Dancer

Above their Fairie hill.

-

Mere mortal of this island

My shackles, flesh and bone

Will hold me back forever

From this my one true home.

-

I did believe in Unicorns

I did begin to see

The world that came to call me

The land of Olde Fairie.

-

But shackles are my mortal bones

And shackles they will be

Til Fairie lights will fade away

In the land of Olde Fairie .

You are a good poet.

I've heard unicorns are the purest of all beings. The blood of a unicorn is so pure it heals the person consuming it. Now i understand it's a fairytale.

Great poem about the mystery behind unicorns! Logically, it's hard to determine where the myth began and reality ends with these creatures. Thanks for sharing!

Nell Rose 7 years ago from England Author

Hi, Money Glitch, thanks for writing. I love Unicorns, I have always read books about them. Maybe at sometime in the past they really did exist! The Hobbits, homo floresiensis, were found recently and until then we didn't believe in them either, so you never know. Thanks again. Nell

Thanks Randy, I just love Unicorns, I know they probably did'nt exist but who knows? maybe in the distant past, they were as common as horses are today. cheers Nell

Nell Rose your poetry is superb and also your hubs. The Unicorn I believe is the most famous of all make-believe for children. We all do need money for our writings, it takes a lot out of us. I am in a new venture check it out: http://NanMynatt.OneGreatMovie.com

I marked you up!

Was drawn to this because I was thinking about my daughter and she still collects unicorns of every sort even though she will soon be 26. Very well expressed. We all need a little magic in our lives sometimes even if we have to imagine it!

This was a lovely poem. I really enjoyed it. And, I "learned" some time ago why adults can't see unicorns. Apparently, the legend goes, they are only visible to virgins. LOL I guess that leave most of us out many years ago.


Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 9 months ago from England Author

LOL! yes maybe that's why I can't see them too! thanks Lizzy, nell
