A Unicorn's Gift

As a new day lay forging and camera in hand
She found herself seeking about once again
In search of green fields, wide reaching trees
Tumbling water, cascading gently to please
Misty aired meadows, clouds kissing blue sky
Colour hues dancing in each scene passed by
She walks sylvan paths hoping for rapture
Looking for splendor her eyes there to capture

Along a path she spied, just off to the side
Another small way as if trying to hide
Something was calling, ‘to me, this way take’
She felt its promise, so soothing it spake
Following its windings past shadows of trees
A whisper heard passing on the Autumn breeze
Stepping from wooded edge her heart was amazed
A sight never witnessed, in awe she just gazed

A lovely green field now holding her view
On it soft dusting’s small red leaves wind blew
To its left the forest, curving miles it seemed
Beauty like this, only wondered and dreamed
The sun shown more softer in sky where it’s kept
So magical this place, she sighed and she wept
Then suddenly a movement from behind an oak
A thought she heard, but no voice heard spoke

She crouched in silence, her heart quickly danced
For out from the forest a unicorn pranced
Snow white and regal with long flowing mane
He stopped in his trot to view his domain
He studied and looked, then glanced her way
as if to say, enjoy, it’s your place for the day
She reached for her camera but then off he flew
No one else would see now, of that which she knew

She walked in the field saddened of what lost
She sat and pondered, her camera she tossed
‘Was the unicorns gift’, she felt so ashamed
Then a calming indwelled her, minds eye it framed
Looking once more at this magical place
Brought sudden peace, a warmth, a smiling face
‘It was his kingdom given to capture this day
Not him the subject, for my camera’s play’
