A Thing of Fearing

A beast of claws and whispers

In the forest waited there,

And reached its jaws to kiss her

And it grasped her golden hair.

 

Yet it was a thing of fearing,

But a shaded whisperer.

It was only willows, leering:

And it was no match for her.

 

 

 

Short little nursery rhyme: most monsters are imaginary, just shadows under the trees. And they are no match for us.
