I can only close my eyes, smile, sigh .....
Have to agree with Helen today -- closed eyes, a smile and a sigh! Have a great one, MZ!
Love your play on words in the last stanza here....I am simply left with a beautiful sigh just like Helen and Sylvia. :-)
This is way cute. I love it.
The true of fairy tales is indisputable. This is beautiful.
Like limericks without being so.. love its playfulness.
I think you nail poetry's greatest power, to celebrate what is but could never be. Narration and biography--bah! They say nothing of the dance!
I love the double meaning in your title, making "never" a noun, saying that the entity of never actually WAS. If that makes sense. :) Like, whatever you're thinking about that never happened in the physical world, actually has more power and "existence" than what really IS, physically. In other words, fairy tales do come true if you imagine them.The closing is so smart, of course. Besides the flip-a-coin word play, I see that you are true to yourself in fairy tales, but not so much in all the heads/hats you wear in your regular daily life. Make that's less real than the tales you spin.
