Dryad in Watercolor
Moonlight in the Wild Woodby R. S. Pyne
The lady of the great oak is dancing
New green leaves her diadem,
Bejewel a spider silk gown,
Her step gossamer as she whirls.
She has watched time pass by.
The years are nothing to her kind;
Her life is bound to the tree.
Six centuries from uncertain sapling to giant –
An ending only when the ancient one dies.
Rarely now – but when the fancy takes her,
She will seek a human lover.
Dance with him in Nemantona's grove.
Their bodies entwined,
Spreading branches a starlit bower.
One night of passion is mayfly brief
Dawn comes and the lover wakes alone.
Finding his mystery lady gone -
He thinks it just a dream.
The dryad does not think of him at all.
