The Last Two Unicorns

Another tale of magic and love so true

the unicorns danced

and pranced

and took a chance

the last two,

the very last unicorn pair and they knew

that once they were safe and sound

the magic would protect them and surround

them with safety and hope so strong

so they went to the place that they belong

with the fairies and all the rest

their safety had been put to the test

now they live free

and are happy as can be

in the land of the magic folk

so many have now awoke

to the magic that weaves

and believes

that these last two unicorns are here to stay

for many a day …

Quotes About Courage

I was looking through quotes, having focused on courage. It was really interesting to find some really good quotes concerning courage. Sometimes we all need courage to do certain things, make changes or attempt something that had been considered scary or somewhat feared. Remember how in the movie The Wizard of Oz, the Cowardly Lion so badly wanted courage? I really did find some really good quotes and I picked out 10 of them for today. I enjoyed reading them and I really do hope you kind readers enjoy them, too! 🙂
