In our movie, black-and-white,
The fairy's role is sad and tragic:
Arrested, once upon a night
And charged on fifty counts of magic,
She froze in utter disbelief
As someone searched through her possessions:
Three bags of love, a jar of grief,
Some verses full of deviations,
Illegal thoughts, forbidden dreams,
A bunch of undeclared friends...
"A vicious criminal, it seems
Is what we have in our hands!"
- "Indeed, her history is known;
Respected people have related
That they have witnessed on their own
The range of crimes she perpetrated:
She followed not the Party's line,
Refused to march and carry banners
With slogans clearly defined
And demonstrated lack of manners."
How strange and cold... the breath of dawn
And scents of herbs have disappeared.
Your life - the fairy - is gone
Along with everything you feared.
