This poem is dedicated to a close friend (and fellow poet): Caryn Brooke Ecker (known to her online friends as 'Lily of the Greenwood'). Caryn passed away on New Year's Night (2003) after a long illness. She was a amazing person, a brilliant poet and a dear friend. I like to believe she dwells with the Faeries now.
From time to time, I get especially inspired by my Muse and the words seem to flow out almost faster than I can write them down...this was the result of one of those occasions. I was fortunate enough to have it included in a small press UK publication called 'ELF Magazine' a few years ago. :)
