~The Unicorn

The unicorn was white, with hoofs of silver
and graceful horn of pearl…
The glorious thing about him was his eye.
There was a faint bluish furrow down each side
of his nose, and this led to the eye sockets,
and surrounded them in a pensive shade.

The eyes, circled by this sad and beautiful darkness,
were so sorrowful, lonely, gentle and nobly tragic,
that they killed all other emotions except love.
