GloPoWriMo 41917 A Brightening

A Brightening

 

Long ago when rains had poured

And forests stood tall and horrid,

Pixies pranced in meadows near

Happily playing without fear;

Some would hide and others seek,

Under tulips, rocks, and leek;

Foolish ones, to forests flew to hide,

Clinging to dark, then calling for guides,

Lost they were, 'neath mushroom chutes

Dodging owls who warned in hoots,

Panicked pixies together flew,

Into dark and danger to

Plant their lights of five small sparks

Held in deep dark by three folded hearts

Hoping the lost now so far away

In the forests in which they'd foolishly strayed-

Dark and deep, forbidding and frightening

Would see pixie paths the forest floor brightening

Dark in the the shadows once set for sorrow

Now shine the lights of the yellow wood sorrel

So now in the forest the lightness appears

Bright in the shadow, allaying dark fears.
