The Selkie's Song|The Opal Dream Cave

Cherries of the night are riperThan the cherries pluckt at noon.Gather to your faery piper When he pipes his magic tune: Merry, merry, Take a cherry; 
Mine are sounder, Mine are rounder, Mine are sweeter For the eaterUnder the moon. And you’ll be faeries soon.— Cherry-Time, by Robert Graves.

Cherries of the night are riper
Than the cherries pluckt at noon.
Gather to your faery piper 
When he pipes his magic tune: 
Merry, merry, 
Take a cherry; 

Mine are sounder, 
Mine are rounder, 
Mine are sweeter 
For the eater
Under the moon. 
And you’ll be faeries soon.
— Cherry-Time, by Robert Graves.
