The Pale Queen of Elfland by Myra Morris

| No TrackBacks
The Pale Queen of Elfland
   Came to my dwelling bare.
Dewdrops were on her fingers
   And stars within her hair.

The Pale Queen of Elfland
   Came riding on the wind:
"Ride with me to World's Ending!"
   I rode, and rode behind.

We passed by hill and moorland,
   We passed by pencilled steep.
"All of the world's white magic
   I shall give to you to keep! 

"All of the world's white magic
   I shall give you, dear, my dear,
If your heart has known no sorrow,
   If your eyes have shed no tear!"

If my heart had known no sorrow!
   I laughed and fell behind,
And the Pale Queen of Elfland
   Was gone upon the wind!
