Free the Unicorns

Second Sight

© Can Stock mtilghmaOnce as I stood by a lake

just as the sun was sinking,

I saw a reflection of light, like a blue-white star winking,

deep in the forest that loomed o’er the shore.

Then the sun sank,

and the light winked no more.

And though I stayed ‘til the coming of morn,

I never saw more

Than the light off the horn

of what

I am sure,

was a unicorn.
