Once I saw a trail of leaves
and wondered where they led
when suddenly I heard a child cry
"To the faeries! To the faeries!"
Curious to the child's glee
I followed so I could see
It seemed we walked a thousand miles
in a matter of five minutes
it turned out we were in faeryland
and the child was an elf in a band
they played music so sublime
I lost track of time
what I thought was an hour
was in fact eleven years since I had a shower!
