White Magic
By Harley Graves
 
From “Songs from the Woods”

WHO bids us be wary
  Of briar and snake
Is led by a fairy.
 
Who finds dry wood
  For the fires we make—        5
His magic is good.
 
Who gathers wild berries
  High on far hills,
Or gets sand-cherries;
 
Or catches the trout        10
  Where the deep hole fills,
Is a mage, no doubt.
 
Who knows the cool hollow
  Where springs drip cold
Is a wizard to follow.        15
 
Let the magic begin
  With the dawn’s red gold—
But the cook is the Jinn!
