Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.

Or maybe I'm rushing the season a bit, but on this bleak day a bit of fairy magic does a lot to lift the clouds and the spirits.
