The River Otter and the Unicorn

In a glade
As in a dream
Ice encrusted trees
Like columns, o’er a meeting rise
Of an otter queen
& mythic being

Imagine their conversation:

One might surmise
It must be weighty
—treaties & pacts
Diplomacy enacted—

But no—
‘Tis light
A mere dandelion down of pleasant
