Witches And Wizards

 

Witches
And Wizards

Can you imagine a world without witches,
A world with all people the same?
Where the only known dragons are hiding in books,
And children are terribly tame?
A world without magick would be sad indeed.
I cannot imagine the pain
of having a world where there’s no Santa Claus,
Where wizards are searched for in vain.
Can you imagine a world without spells,
That science and businesses run?
And think of the sadness a unicorn feels
When he no longer plays in the sun.
Can you imagine a world without witches?
No elves, and no magickal pools?
And can you imagine how dull it would be
If all that we had were the schools?
I cannot imagine a world without witches,
A world with no magickal wand.
A world without beauty or even a dream,
or a wood sprite of whom to be fond.
They say say I should grow up and be more mature,
Like a normal adult ought to do,
But I’d rather, at night, go to dance with a witch,
And I’ll bet that you feel that way, too.
 
——Robert F. Potts, “Can You Imagine?”
