Life in the shadows, child of night,

Ventures forth, as curiosity calls.

Stopping in her tracks, mesmerized

As the sun on her face, does fall

Frocked in tulle, a ballerina babe

Enchanted by the forest, she waits.

Flickers of light, against the trees,

Eyes become wider, pupils dilate.

She hesitates, afraid to go further,

Yet, something draws her into it,

A recollection of happier ways

In dreams, one must simply pursue it.

Come, child, it said,

Follow the rays.

Let the light guide you,

Through the darker days.”
