once upon a time

Once upon a time, she said
as we lay curled up on my bed
magic, fairies, kings and wands
shiny rings in deep green ponds
tigers, knights and giants too
hidden treasures, a bright red shoe
ancient places, brave young men
silly chickens, clever hen
singing creatures, frightened thieves
dancing girls and golden leaves
steadfast hearts, icy snow
weary travellers, far to go
wicked queens, a helpful friend
brave ones winning in the end
sleepy kisses, dim the light
close your eyes and dream. Goodnight.
