Some people think fairy-folk

Are no more then country joke…

The citified

Are “open-eyed”

Or so they will have spoke.

For most, video games,

Have replaced mythical names…

For natural things

Imagined with wings,

That mortals can scarcely explain.

A sense of wonder—is it gone?

As a boring life drones on…

What is left to suspect

When all is direct(ly)

Available then we move on?

Kids grow up way too soon,

In love, in “knowledge”, in gloom…

Imagination is dulled

By facts quickly pulled,

With little interesting left to assume.

—Jonathan Caswell
