Once upon a Time

There is a certain magic

A spine-tingling moment

When the tale begins

You could be beside an open fire

In an armchair or in bed

The opening of a fairy tale

Is the unlocking of your head

To a densely populated forest

With trails and trees,

Witches and fairies,

Princes and princesses,

And all kinds of creatures,

Once upon a time…
