Faerie Forgotten

“The Rose” – Alphonse Mucha, 1898

i wonder
if there
are those
who still
believe
in fairies,
in snow-sprites,
in princes
on white
chargers
who will
come to
save the
day…

i doubt it.

for the
mists of lore,
the pixie dust
have been
replaced
by vile
vapors,
potions,
philtres –
the damning
by-products
of a madman’s
pharmacopia.

sad,
isn’t
it?

but there
remain
those of
us
who hold
fast
the yearning,
the ambition,
the passion
for all things
magickal.

alas…
we are but
few…

for most
of mankind –
in its
mad…
dizzying…
nauseating
drive
for
all
things
technological –

most of mankind…

has forgotten
how to
dream.
