Folklore Or Not

The woodland beckons me, calls me within
It's musical chorus can be barely heard
A mystical presence, a tone prevails in the wind

I stumble on wild thickets on the ground
Absent of pathways, thorny brambles instead
Moving along on foot, not easy I have found

Wild sumac, and aggressive vines grows thickly here
But this mysterious music draws me further in
These woods are an impossible hike I fear

Pulling twigs from my hair, I stare
A clearing, moss so deep that feet disappear
In the dappled light dust sparkles are seen in the air

Rapid movements I see to my right
The music is stilled, not a sound except
Quick tiny footsteps taking flight

Folklore of elusive music-playing imps
Vanish magically leaving dust sparkles in the air
Only a brief glimpse I saw of these tiny scamps
A faint single note played, I thought I heard

    Thanks so much for the wonderful comment. I also find myself transported to a different time and place as I read this poem. The dust sparkles give it a nice touch of reality, yet parts of it are somewat surreal. Makes it good in my book.
