Under the hedges the ground was still like a frozen brick,
Cracks zig zagged over the surface leaving gaps,
Where old Jacomus in his wild dance,
Would whirl and freeze as if in a trance,
Robins and Thrushes vainly search for grains and grubs,
Along with the scampering long tailed mouse,
His whiskers a twitching sensing out a louse,
Badgers warm and snug in their deep setts,
Foxes scream and call in the forest deep,
Pheasants shuffle in gamekeepers keep.
A rattle in bleak blangk twigs and branches,
A lady in white on her unicorn prances,
Breathing warm air from between ruby red lips,
Softening the earth making it fertile again,
Where plants and bushes will start to awaken,
The joy of rebirth and beginigs anew once more.
Time passed seasons came and seasons departed
Full moons blazed in midnight skies
And waned again disappearing from sight
Springs budded and bloomed
Summers were full of bounty
Autumns glowed with orange light
Winters were sparkly and diamond bright.
Things were forgotten bad times
Fled from recollection and life settled.
Harvests were bounteous and everything flourished.
Worgleschnortzkopf lived in his little house
Content with his ways no one came to bother him
He earth ticked by slowly as fairy life does
Mortal men may come and go with amazing speed
But none of that disturbed them in the forest deep
Life went on as it always did peaceful and content.
Occasionally a thrush stopped by with fairy rider
To impart some news concerning forest ways
But hours ticked by turning into days
Days became weeks which in turn became months
And soon the months became years .
