Once upon a time
, there was a magical nodeshell
. It had a happy life
, for though it was as poor as a church mouse
it had lived
in all of the fairy-tale locations
that there had ever been.
It had lived in.....
A cottage made of salt
A gingerbread house
A distant Kingdom
A thousand sleeps beyond the land of Many Rivers
The Land where the rainbow rises
The country between 9 rivers and 9 mountains
A secret city in the farthest depths of the ocean
The middle of an enchanted forest
The land of snowflakes
Beyond the copper forest and the iron mountain
The land of the endless desert
and eventually, it came with all its little knapsack and settled in the strangest land it had ever seen.
And here it stayed for the rest of its days.
