Ode to the Unicorn


A beast of magic

With spiraled horn,

Gentle yet deadly-

The Unicorn.

Some are grey,

Or black, or white,

Others subdued,

Or rainbow bright;

Creatures of day,

Creatures of night,

Beings of darkness,

Beings of light.

Wild as the wind,

Still as the sea;

Just out of sight,

Graceful and free.
