Magic of a Brand New Day
by Marc Gunn, Bard 5/27/2003

I went up to visit Scarborough Faire this weekend, and had a great conversation with Lili who used to perform with the Bedlam Bards. Lili sang an absolutely beautiful song she had written about faeries called "The Night Hunt" (or rather the Welsh version of that). It inspired me to write this poem.

Glistening puddles on a starry night
Reflect the heavens and faery delight
Waves roll as the fey surf
Carefree merriment at trees girth
Pixies and sprites dancing in circles round
Calling for flowers and buds from ground
Green and silver webs of spells
While root and leaf weave among the dells
Fireflies and night folk gather and dance
When out of the woodwork comes angelic dances
Cold and hard with smile of wry mirth
And Mother Nature anxious to have the world give birth
To new and old and colors subdued
While dawn awakes she feels imbued
With all wishes of a day well-blessed
And all the drops of water crest
The magic slowly begins to fade
And the world is blessed with a brand new day
