Carpet of ether

hiding in her grey cloak,
she casts her spell among few,
mysteriously spilling her charm here,

the night clearly bespoke,
of cosmos being born new,
every night among fairies sparkling clear,

they are thousands around,
in different shapes and forms,
guarding, waiting ,watching everyone here,

keeping worlds around sound,
ether’s carpet uniforms,
shooting magical arrow, night endear.
