You came here once…

Once, a long time ago, you came. Into my realm you’ve ventured without even noticing. Just once – for a mere moment, do you recall?..

Once, a long time ago, you came. Young as the spring, but a lass, with flowers in your hair, you came. Just once – when the world was still fresh and new – do you remember?..

Once, a long time ago, you came. I met you there, in the depth of the forest, and I greeted you, as a Lord would greet a lady. Just once – when the veil was still thin, as a silken thread of a spider web – do you recall?

Once, a long time ago, you came. I showed you my kingdom, and gifted you with the rarest flowers to adorn your golden hair. I gave you sweet wine, and apples, almonds and grapes, but you liked my pomegranates most. Just once – when you were but a lightfooted lass in a flowing dress – do you remember?..

Once, a long time ago, you came. A ring I gave you, with the gem as green as the new born spring, and you accepted. Just once – when Beltane was but a moment old- do you recall?..

Once, a long time ago, you came. I looked upon you, and your eyes met mine. You smiled to me, and no sweeter smile have I seen in years. Just once – for a moment- do you remember?

Once, a long time ago, you came. You asked what my name was, and I answered. You tasted it as one would taste the ripe fruit, and smiled. Just once – and the world was perfect to me- do you recall?..

Once, a long time ago, you came. The veil grew thicker, and it was time to leave. You took a silken ribbon of blood red from your perfect hair. You made a flower wreath and crowned me. Just once- when the birds were singing- do you remember?

Once, a long time ago, you came. A moment was enough then to fall in love – and I did. Before you left, I asked what your name was – and you answered. Just once – when the dream was still precious – do you recall?..

Once, a long time ago, you came. I tasted your name, as one would taste the wine – and it was sweeter than any. You left then, but your name lingered in the air. Just once- when it all was perfect- do you remember?

Once, a long time ago, you came. I repeated your name, and the flowers bloomed. My world became whole and I knew. Just once- once in a lifetime it happens- do you recall?..

Once, a long time ago, you came. And I vowed I would make you my Queen, for i have never seen the like of you. Can you hear me calling you, Creiddylad? I shall come for you. Not once – many a time – and make you mine.
