Surrounded by mountain laurel and hidden beneath layers of Kudzu vine.
You will discover Jasper Hollow, an enchanted, magical marble mine.
You will be greeted by a centaur, by the way his name is Tate.
He will gladly serve you tea and cookies upon a silver granite plate.
Follow a wood nymph name Nelson, through a labyrinth paved with amber stone.
Take a rest from your adventure, to enjoy an Irish scone.
Select some pebbles from a Talking rock, can you hear their fascinating sound.
Don’t be surprised if you are stopped by a sprite, to ask what you have found.
Chase a leprechaun if you dare down a Marble Hill slide.
Don’t forget to look under four leaf clovers, for that’s where they love to hide.
Play hopscotch with a pixie. Jump rope with a silly gnome.
Ride like the wind on a unicorn. Play checkers at a dragon’s home.
When the sun sets over Jasper Hollow, and you really don’t want to leave.
Don’t be sad my child, to return all you need to do, is BELIEVE.
