Picket Fence

A white picket fence
It is my defense 
Not unsightly, but
Achieves what it must
Encloses my castle
From darkness, from hassle 
My forest, my flowers
My self-healing powers
My snowslips, my snail shells
My fireflies, my fairytale 
My Scots pine and thistle 
My chimes, bells, and whistles 
The wood I have whittled 
My harp, cello, fiddle
The music I'm making 
My layer cake baking
My horses, my mares
My staircase of hair
My unicorn legend
3 lifetimes of lessons
My palace, my fortress 
Do you dare disturb this?
Come at me correctly 
Requited, respectfully
