A fairy tale ending,

----Has kept me awake for three nights.

--Fading noon light just didn't seem right.

-The shadows that crossed the deep forest pass,

have grown, though quite slowly, creeping like grass.

------The birds that sang, but one hour ago,

---have turned dark, foreboding - to raven and crow.

----And the couple so recently joined as one heart -

--------I thinks soon will opt to forever depart.
