The Elven Children (poem)

In a forest of giant flowers
  each with a special scent
We look for the elven children
  and wonder where they went

The sun lies soft up on us
  in this morning of the Spring
We walk in gentle silence
  through the wonders that it brings

Bluebirds fly around us
  all singing different songs
But they blend in splendid magic
  and we can sing along.

The scent from the flowers
  fills so gay the air
And the choir of the bluebirds
  surrounds us everywhere.

In that moment of tender beauty
  I ask if you would dance
Then you take my hand, you're smiling,
  perchance this brings romance.

Not long as we've been dancing
  the elven children lose their fear
They come from where they're hiding
  and dance about us near.

With flutes and tiny lyres
  the children start to play
While the bluebirds sing in chorus
  on this light and gentle day.

There's no politic in loving
  No threat from foreign shores
In harmony with Spring time
  We'll not see that anymore.

Your eyes brighter than the sunlight
  Your touch softer than the rain
Here you never will be lonely
  You will never be again

In light and love we're dancing
  while the children gently play
As the flowers scent the magic
  and the bluebirds sing the day.
