365 Drabble Challenge #10


This is a tale of two siblings slight,
who escaped from a Witch in the dead of night.
For on the morrow were they to stay,
They'd be turned into stone and gifted to Fae.

"What fortune," They thought when a well that they found,
concealed such a passage, deep underground.
They followed the tunnel, whose magic arcane,
led them right back to the Witch's domain.

The witch made them statues and gave them away,
Two siblings who've not been seen to this day.
And that is why children, the bad and the good,
should never, ever, wander the Wood.
