Haven of Fables

Hey Again! So for English class (I'm definitely getting ALOT of assignments huh?) we had to write a poem on Fantasy, and since we could write our poems based on fantasy books, I chose a huge fantasy book series that I adore, Fablehaven by Brandon Mull. Here it is!

Haven of Fables
by Me

Far Away, I know a place
where the is not time for manners or grace
Where creatures come out and make schemes
but it's not all as it seems

Fairies claim to be the Queens of Day
Their evil twins, imps, however have nothing to say
Where Dragons and Griffins rule the skies
filling the forest with their cries

Demons locked up in prisons, full of hate
Brownies leave being the things they create
Satyrs sit and secretly watch TV
but Hamadryads are linked to a single tree

Unicorns have never EVER been seen
Centaurs have a horn though, that glosses and gleams
Nacroblix's control the minds of those asleep
while Drumants have been known the crawl and creep

Sirrush's are known to fly, yowl and yap
and an Octobear's tentacles can tightly wrap
Nipsies, though small, are filthy rich
A Stingbulb would make a useful switch

Swamp Hags create false things to lure people in
Be careful what you wish for around a Jinn
Jackalopes are said to be incredibly lucky
being next to a Lich, however, is just plain yucky

Astrids, the owl-humans, are calm and quiet
opposed to Chimeras, who make quite a riot
Viviblix's re-animate the dead, a Zombie Army
While Niads or Water Nymphs are unbelievably smarmy

Dullians have no will, and are under control
The one with an all-seeing eye is a Troll
Dryads are Wood Nymphs and guardians of the Fairy Shrine
When Witched plans are foiled, well, all they do it whine

A Cockatrice will steal a dragon's eggs
Hobgoblins are snake-like creatures with two legs
Fog Giants are powerful, but stupid and slow
The only original golem left is called Hugo

Goblins are tricksters and change their shape
A Karkadann would be hard to escape
Firedrakes are fire-breathing, snakey monsters
The Lamniase is a winged bull among other terrors

Leprechauns and Hermit Trolls stand pretty small
Ogres, on the other hand, are clumsy and tall
Lectoblix's drain the youth of others
Wow, Dwarves sure had hairy mothers!

An Alcetaur is centaur with a moose's body
Harpies though, are totally gaudy
A Lycantrope is another word for werewolves
A Peryton is a flying deer with fangs and sharp hooves

The Revenant guards a magical artifact and radiates fear
Thylacines, also known as Tasmanian Tigers, mysteriously disappear
The Levithan is a sea monster and gatekeeper of Hell
The Milch Cow, Viola, has magical milk, unfortunately not to sell

A Cyclops has only one giant eye
A Kobold's breath will make you cry
A Manticore is a combonation of a lion, man and scorpion's tail
The Sight of a Basalisk is enough to make you wail

An Apparation is a ghost-like image of a person you know
Giants are the largest creatures, but really slow
Pheonix's are re-born from the ashes of which they died
A Whisper Hound is there to guard and seek out those who hide

Roc's are huge, legendary Birds of Prey
A Sphinx has plenty of riddles is you wish to stay
While a Shade is shockingly and scarily undead
The Hydra, a fierce beast, has too many a head

Elves work hard for the Fairy Queen
Wizardry, in this and our world, is like a dream
The Minotaur is a beast, one of a kind
A Phantom will haunt and mess up your mind

Gargoyles are hard, stony and deadly
Sea Serpents do not only exist in story and medley
Shape-Shifters are the equivalent to Harry Potter's Animagi
so that leaves the human race: Kendra, Seth and I

Although this place is very dangerous
but yes, it's truly adventurous
Even though with mysterious and breath-taking creatures;
This is Fablehaven. A Sanctuary for Creatures.

Here's a Blurb of Fablehaven, incase you don't know about the Fablehaven series:

For centuries mystical creatures of all description were gathered into a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite. Kendra and her brother, Seth, have no idea that their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven. Inside the gated woods, ancient laws keep relative order among greedy trolls, mischievous satyrs, plotting witches, spiteful imps, and jealous fairies. However, when the rules get broken -- Seth is a bit too curious and reckless for his own good -- powerful forces of evil are unleashed, and Kendra and her brother face the greatest challenge of their lives. To save their family, Fablehaven, and perhaps even the world, Kendra and Seth must find the courage to do what they fear most.
