Unicorn’s Meadow

When I saw today’s prompt the first thing I thought of was teeth cavities of course, but the second thing I thought about was a hollow in the Earth. Some of my stuff has been pretty morose, so I wrote this for my daughter and her undying love of unicorns.

 

Deep in a cavity

Under the ground

Is a beautiful meadow

Where unicorns are found

 

They went down there

Sometime long ago

Where they have no enemies

No sadness or woes

 

There they just play

Among all of the flowers

With powerful wizards

Who live high in their towers

 

The magic place they made

Keeps the unicorns safe

From people far above

Who would hope to enslave

 

A unicorn can’t be kept

That much we all know

They belong to no one

Hearts pure like the snow

 

The wizards though knew

If they took them below

The world would lose joy

That unicorns gave long ago

 

So it was agreed

That whenever we sleep

Magic dreams would be made

So the joy we could keep

 

Late in the night

All the children so young

Could dream of days in the meadow

Filled with magic and fun

 

And now to this day

Unicorns fill our dreams

In that wonderful meadow

Where they prance in sunbeams

 

So squeeze your eyes shut

Wish with all of your might

That you’ll visit their meadow

When you sleep tonight
