Nymphs and nature The fae of Greece flowing water twisting trees the powerful surprise of a falling leaf the sturdy crush of the rushing spring down the mountain Oreiads leap And in the sunlight Dryads weep Cut, damaged by graffiti Nonetheless they are free In the night or dark rainy days The Nereids and Naiads splash & play The Dryads and Oreiads Dance under the moon A full moon A storm moon Unobserved, they persist
