There's a ghostlier note to that fiddle.
A spoon that's more rake took the dish and the cake,
And the sunrise was left with the riddle.

Simply the first few seconds of "Gravity" by Gorillaz on a Rhapsody left to run. But Albarn's ghostbaby voice just about sent me leaping from my soggy sneaks.

Kidnapping of some knight. Though a distinction really must be made. The mythoscape is littered with so many maids a-wander, peering under every suspect toadstool for a handsome abductee, that how is one to know? How are they to know for that matter? One gent is like to the next when it comes to the tug of Faery. They are nothing but poor souls whose lot it is to be completely unmanned under the gaze of the Goddess--as Troll Princess, Titania, Venus herself. In that arena a Cupid looks much like a Beast, who looks much like a Bear, or a Frog Prince, or a Tam Lin. Under such circumstances, who would blame a girl for a slight blurring in discernment to make a quick end to her search? Keep in mind that half these women are trudging around with growing wombs.
But they do know and they stay the course--floating over the geography like pretty spores. White-gowned, white-crowned, with passive purpose. Until the time comes to get weedy and tenacious.

Never expect consolation from the nodding snow drop. Or take a turn with the curtseying hyacinth. The narcissus is subject to flattery and the tiger-lily is the great prevaricator. Though their petals may be bright, the daisies have long ago fallen to rot. The shining ranunculus will blind your eyes.
Grab the stalk and scar the hand and the rose will lead you to Lapland.

Come, wait upon him; lead him to my bower.
The moon methinks looks with a watery eye;
And when she weeps, weeps every little flower,
Lamenting some enforced chastity.
Tie up my love's tongue bring him silently.

Early design for the Greenferners. Doing a couple more fer ther perusal.
Recently watched The Unbearable Lightness of Being (aka The Incredible Likeness of Bean --you can almost taste the green of those sprouts!). It was alright, I guess--dark and thought-ish. Had to turn it off midway because it had neither magic, superpowers, spaceships, or a makeover scene. Know your limits. Work within them.
