I believe in Unicorns

I believe in unicorns
Though I've never touched one
Never tangled my fingers in glacial mane
Never savored thundering muscles through my legs
Never met iridescent horn with my fingertip

But sometimes I hear thundering hoof beats
Sometimes sense I'm being watched
Sometimes misty curtains part
And I think I see a tossing head
White against vaporous white
