The most important things are hidden
Fairies are very shy
Unicorns are real if unridden
Not only birds can fly
Magic comes in the dark unbidden

Disbelieving folk are divorced
From natural reality
Their minds are frigid firm and forced
Disdaining what they dare not see

Should seagirls swim to such as these?
I would not have them cast their pearls
Nor model their agilities
Before such swinish unworthies
Who see the sea but not the girls!

If you have never seen a fairy
Never conclude they do not exist
For their hiddenness is the very
Reason they are able to persist
Here where others are bigger than they
They have to be able to fly away

Just because you have never seen one
Does not mean there has never been one
Right under your nose as you sniffed a rose
And that is why they have wings you know
So as to be able to get up and go
When the wild winds of a rose-sniffer blow

Wispy feeling to this poem, Steven. I like the sound and images and that first line "The most important things are hidden." and this: "...divorced/From natural reality". These lines bring to mind 'auras,' also important and hidden from minds "frigid firm". Very nice writing. ~~ Diana

I believe in magic and powers and little and invisible people and creatures we've never seen because of their magic!

Love ya!
