	Selene: Elphin Queen

	Subtle temptress of the elphin wand
	  who shapes us by the light of the hoary moon;
	to the dwellers of the dark sea you come
	  queen of night and dreams, chanting your black tune.
	       	O that we might know once more,
	          	 the old magic of the woman in the moon.
	
	Under the spell of her violet gaze
	  we are held like children in a cage,
	all our proud ways suddenly brought down in amaze
	   by the magic of her faŽrie rage.
		O that we might be once more,
	              free to roam the wild world with the woman in the moon.
	
	Her secret life is part of the ancient light
	   that once shined over the Isle of the Wise,
	where nine ladies, high priestesses of the goddess sight
	    once lived in the mystic seas of the western skies.
	           O that we might sing once more,
	               the old dirges of the enchanted woman in the moon.
	
	Guarded by a golden dragon and his horde
	   this elphin queen once lay a night with her charming prince,
	under a wintering moon in the land of the undying sun
	    where she gave her pledge to protect the people of green earth.
		O that we might see once more,
	             the elphin queen and her white mare roaming with the woman in the moon.
