To Magic

Do you believe in magic?

In wonders, and spells, and miracles?

In dancing pixies by the pond

And trolls and ogres, sirens and ghosts?

 

A Foolish man once said

“No man, I don’t”

He fell down a well

Suddenly was fond

Of talking to things

That eyes cannot detect

Of praying to gods

And begging for help.

 

Oh yes, when in doubt,

Those magical beings

They are the ones

That we turn to, unseeing.

When humans forsake us

When all science fails

And our own strength has weakened,

Has left us no choice.

 

No choice. Is that what it takes

For man to turn to elves?

To goblins and banshees

To brightly lid shrines and hand carved idols

To the supreme beings up high?

To magic.
