Once I saw a nymph in the forest green, hiding amongst the trees nearly unseen.

Graceful as a bird on the wing

Opening its beak to sing;

Slender hands dancing to and fro, 

Weaving gossamer threads of snow;

Eyes piercing as shards of ice,

Quick to understand fate's price;

Lips as dainty as a rosebud, 

Red as the color of fresh blood;

Ears with slightly pointed tips,

Soft as velvet, yet sharp as whips;

A tiny little button nose,

As beautiful as a white rose;

Hair as golden as a ray of sun

Shining when the day is done. 

I saw her amongst the golden trees,

But deaf ears fell upon my pleas.

And on fleeting feet she fled

Back to her mossy forest bed.
