Storybook Fairytales

When I was a child
as many children often do
thought stories of the wild
and fairy tales were true

The unicorn of fable
and the enchanted wood
with fairies always able
working magic for our good

As there the pixies play
all around the ivory tower
where the sleeping princess lay
waiting for the midnight hour 

When her white shining knight
would ride upon his steed
slay the dragon with his might
and with a kiss be freed

How I long that the past
with its simple childish pleasure
throughout this life would last
to enjoy it at our leasure.
