The Child-Fairy Queen

Where are they going,

These Child-fairies tiptoeing under the stars?

Threading through pine trees.

 “Tread in a line please.”

Soft the command.

Someone is hidden or cannot be seen

It is She of the secrets, She of the starlight

She – the shy Child-fairy Queen.

Why do you quiver with every step, 

Child-fairy Queen? 

Shouldn't you be relieved 

With the golden crown that you've received?

An honour bestowed on very few 

Yet, this does not seem to please you. 

 

How will you rule 

The Child-fairy kingdom? 

You who means so much to them… 

Lead them with bravery. 

Your crown resembles determination, and not slavery. 

She of the secrets, she of the starlight 

She – the shy Child-fairy Queen.

Where is he,

The Child-fairy King?

The fearless leader of our kind…

Remain brave whilst he is lost

We must find him at all cost

She of the secrets, she of the starlight 

She – the shy Child-fairy Queen.

At the other side of the forest darting between the trees

Is the child-fairy king

Lost, searching for the thing

More powerful then power- braver then the brave

Searching for the map: The map hidden in the cave

Searching all around, been searching for so long

All the searching has been so much, it’s driving the king to the ground

Weak and frail. Gone so long

 

The power is Gone.

 

All the energy comes from the song

The child-fairy queen had sung to him

“You’re powerful you’re strong

Don’t be gone for so long

I’ll be here waiting for you no matter what you do

With the map of all power the kingdom will flower

With strength with growth it’ll be new,

I can’t do it without you”

That was years ago

Has she forgot? Has she remarried? Who has she got?

What is the child-fairy kingdom without its king?

All this searching for this legendary thing

Is it actually real? Is this a waste of a search?

The child-fairy king, searching through the birch

 

His legs slowly withering

Was leaving the kingdom wrong?

All this time I have been gone

My queen is waiting, my kingdom too

Where is it now, what should I do?

Should I go home? Is that the right thing to do?

Or should I continue searching

 

Searching for the legendary thing

Swamps, lakes, villages, I have travelled far,

I have fought and fallen,

On me lie many scars,

I still can remember my wife as she sings,

I’m still searching, searching for my legendary thing.

 

As night falls upon me,

The stars start to shine,

Falling asleep on soggy wet grass,

The legendary thing comes to my mind.

 

The glistening blue gown that she wore,

Her emerald green eyes that shimmered in the light,

I close my eyes and saw,

Her appearance in the night.

 

As the dawn starts to break,

In the distance I see,

High up in the mountains, a girl

Could it be she?

 

Racing the light flying fast,

I visualise her from the past,

My girl fly’s towards me,

Crying with joy.

 

He says “I love you my treasure”,

She says “I have finally found you”,

Do you still love me?

I’ve loved you forever.

 

She of the mountains,

She of the risk,

She the brave,

my child fairy princess.

Swamps, lakes, villages, I have travelled far,

I have fought and fallen,

On me lie many scars,

I still can remember my wife as she sings,

I’m still searching, searching for my legendary thing.

 

As night falls upon me,

The stars start to shine,

Falling asleep on soggy wet grass,

The legendary thing comes to my mind.

 

The glistening blue gown that she wore,

Her emerald green eyes that shimmered in the light,

I close my eyes and saw,

Her appearance in the night.

 

As the dawn starts to break,

In the distance I see,

High up in the mountains, a girl

Could it be she?

 

Racing the light flying fast,

I visualise her from the past,

My girl fly’s towards me,

Crying with joy.

 

He says “I love you my treasure”,

She says “I have finally found you”,

Do you still love me?

I’ve loved you forever.

 

She of the mountains,

She of the risk,

She the brave,

my child fairy princess.

Swamps, lakes, villages, I have travelled far,

I have fought and fallen,

On me lie many scars,

I still can remember my wife as she sings,

I’m still searching, searching for my legendary thing.

 

As night falls upon me,

The stars start to shine,

Falling asleep on soggy wet grass,

The legendary thing comes to my mind.

 

The glistening blue gown that she wore,

Her emerald green eyes that shimmered in the light,

She says “I have finally found you”,

Do you still love me?

I’ve loved you forever.

 

She of the mountains,

She of the risk,

She the brave,

my child fairy princess.
