this is the stuff of your dreams;

we are walking on stars like stepping-stones,
the Queen-Moon smiling cooly at my hop-scotch attempts,
like a weary mother, as our hands intertwine and we jump.

"it's time to come inside, darlings" but father hasn't yet shone his fire beams, the throne is still filled, i am loyal to my royal.
