When thinking of gifts we search our soul.
Pondering such times as this and whether or not to go.
Sometimes in the search we miss those things smaller,
while examining the bigger picture, including things taller.
I, myself experienced this process.
It was finally clear and concise.
To have found that which to give would be best,
might be to speak of a special couple's wedding night.
"Go to the outer forest quickly,
I, the wise owl say.
"For today the gods celebrate
a mortal's wedding day."
"Head true and swiftly,
but be sure you go silently.
For the gods may not appreciate,
your attendance so lightly."
The Brownies and Pixies heeded,
the wise old owl's foresight.
They accelerated through the forest,
far faster than they had thought.
Under the ocean above the trees,
A meadow soon came into the light.
They took quite care of bristling leaves,
as they approached very cautiously to achieve better sight.
Ahead appeared a seemingly joyous and loud celebration.
The mighty Thor laughed with thunderous occasion.
The mortals tried, oh yes they truly did, to be happier,
but Thor only succeeded them wielding his Golden hammer.
Zeus threw his bolts of lighting,
into the clear skies above.
But the Brownies rapt attention went out,
to Aphrodite, goddess of love.
perhaps a bit too much,
For in each of her hands,
she held each of the beating mortal's hearts.
She hugged them a little,
and gave them a bloody kiss.
But what happened next,
the brownies and pixies adored most.
The two hearts melded together,
and above everyone they took flight,
traveling further and further,
until both were far from sight.
At this the gods began to softly weep,
But Aphrodite, she did shout,
"Do not grieve those two hearts,
for under my power they shall never part."
The Brownies and Pixies abandoned by fear,
shared among themselves many a grin.
For as they witnessed the wedding,
they found much of its grace in everyone of them.
Traveling home, oh so slowly they did,
As they listened to the forest's howls,
until one day they arrived back at their cozy home,
where they rested among fellows and the wise old owl.
