And so you think
Your love more real
Than stories so fantastic,
Of princesses and fairy
Tales; of substance
More elastic?

You think your heart
Is brave to field
The dragon's fiery promise?
Ask not for trials
Which must reveal
Your heart, as doubting Thomas.

My thoughts go quiet
Into that night-
They do not pray, for greatness
The time is past;
We can't unwind
The loving hour's lateness.
