Once Upon A Time

Once the darkened forces spoke,
And witches plagued the kindly folk,
Beneath the trees of ash and oak,
Once upon a time.

Once there was a maiden fair,
With perfect figure, golden hair,
Enticed into the goblin's lair,
Once upon a time.

Once there were the fairies, pure,
When silver bells hung from the door,
Curse undo, and illness cure,
Once upon a time.

Once there was a handsome prince,
His stallion would leap the fence,
And save the maid from this day hence,
Once upon a time.

Once the magic still was real,
Set in words, with steadfast seal,
Sceptical, we closed this deal,
Once upon a time.
