A winter passed
Quiet and still
A spring came
Leaves grew fast
The good earth
Became green at last

With the dawn
In early summer
In an emerging pink sky
A girl was born
To Moondust
Her first cry

The birds  sang high in the blue
The word was passed
All of magic knew
Of Moondusts’ faerie child
Aquilas’ joy

Faeries came to see
The Moondust queen
That in summer
A girl was born
In our room
Filled with light
Such joy was seen
