Meet Me by the Wishing Well

 I don't usually get all rhymy with my poems, but this felt right . . . 

 

Meet Me by the Wishing Well

-for Faerie Friend A.

 

Do you ever feel sing-sang-sung,

Like all your dreams have already

unspun?

 

Girl, meet me by the wishing-well—

Won’t you wonder if you don’t?

I’ll cast us both a star-crash spell!

 

Pull every light down from cold-hearted skies

So you remember how moonlight feels

And all the ways silver falls and sunlight sighs.

 

<>*<>

Do you ever feel sing-sang-sung

Like all your dreams have come

undone?

 

Woman, meet me by the wishing-well—

Won’t you wonder if you don’t?

I’ll cast us both a star-crash spell!

 

Cinders and fireflies shine just the same,

So burn your spark to the quick of time!

Never let your ember shadow and tame.

Do you ever feel sing-sang-sung

Like all your dreams aren’t true yet

begun?

 

Old friend, meet me by the wishing-well—

Won’t you wonder if you don’t?

I’ll cast us both a star-crash spell!

 

Let’s wander the whole world over until we know

Beyond anatomies of wing and mortal bone

The deep soul song of glitter and glow.
