Stygian sky shining mirthless black,
star-strewn heaven a distant light,
hill and dale and beaten paths
lead to an enchantment of modern lack.
Its old-world charms draw one in,
ivy-grown wood with rustic love,
stone cemented driven deep in ground,
drastic shadows, none of them kin.
It must have seen innumerable days,
Neopia's weather-worn well,
hopeful Neopians making a trip
to drop and wish with many days' pay.
Something hears what hearts've desired,
foolish things they do request
material wants from a generous well
sleeping the day away, retired.
I am now to do the same --
in the witness of the stars.
The coin pressed tightly to my chest --
the very last in my name.
With faith, I toss it down,
with open eyes I watch it fall,
with an open heart my wish is heard
peaceful forever in this small town.
At Terror Mountain's peak a faerie dwells,
Her cottage haven to those lost in storm.
Many she's rescued out of blizzard's chill,
Nursing them to health in her cottage warm.
In a sky-blue fur coat she's always dressed,
Which matches feath'ry wings of blue and white.
Visit her, and she'll offer you a quest
With promise of reward if it's done right.
The Snow Faerie left behind faerie kin
To dwell among the mountain's snowy peaks,
Braving both fearful chill and sharp-edged wind
For a landscape that some fools would call bleak.
But Taelia in all her wisdom knows
Nothing's more lovely than fresh-fallen snow.
Strolling through the evening town
Alongside my trusty pet,
Something dashes by, I glance down.
What I see, I won't forget.
With twitching ears and lifeless eyes,
It gazed into my soul.
It was quietly plotting my demise,
Eerie as a ghoul.
Raining, cold, the sky was black;
The creature whined and shook,
But it sent shivers down my back
With just a single look.
Despite this, I decide
To take the poor thing with me,
But once we got inside
It bared its teeth and bit me!
I yelled in pain, and it jumped back.
This thing I couldn't keep.
I swatted my hand, I shook my fist;
It protested with a "meep."
This ball of fluff, with a menacing frown,
I can't believe I decided to keep it.
I'll always regret, that day in the town...
The day I took home a Meepit.
The Lonely Isle
A ship cruises to Lutari Island,
Mist concealing all from sight.
The crew is pleased to have dry land,
But some want to stay in the warm light.
For the midnight hour has fallen,
Leaving all to the imagination.
Some perceive friends calling,
While others fear an abomination.
An argument ensues;
Shall they stay or go?
It splits them into two crews,
Each with tempers ready to blow.
A mediator comes forth,
Cooler heads prevail.
They come to an agreement of sorts,
Uncertainly they once more set sail.
The island left undisturbed,
All is well once more.
The breeze blows as through silent suburb;
A wave caresses the shore.
Draphly: a blue blur,
humming through the sky,
dashing across the earth,
faster than one can sigh.
Fluttering its wings,
curling up its antennae,
looking out of its eyes onto the king
of Meridell and then Faerieland,
the faeries laughing merrily.
Then of Mystery Island, the sand,
the Draphly going past without notice.
Flying past the cherry blossom trees,
faster until it rests on a Cyclamen.
Rubbing its head against it,
the scent filling its small self,
then nibbling at it bit by bit,
slowly rising back into the air,
to begin its adventure,
soaring through the skies of Neopia,
without a care,
just a blue blur --
humming through the sky.
