"The Queen of Forgotten Time": a child's rhyme with deeper hints

So long story short my players have been trying to do research on "The Queen of Forgotten Time". For the first time, they've dared to ask people outside their inner circle, and one of their allies - a council member from a neighboring colony - mentioned she'd heard the title before as part of a childhood rhyme. Figured I'd post it here for anyone who might want to make use of it.

The Queen of Forgotten Time
Lives in the land sublime
Where sapphire waterfalls gleam
And with ravens the canopies teem

The Queen of Forgotten Time
Has a house on the edge of rhyme
Just beyond the graveyard's snows
At the top where the beanstalk grows

The Queen of Forgotten Time
Drinks the finest of emerald wine
From vineyards in the forest’s depths
In the land of a thousand breaths

The Queen of Forgotten Time
Sings with harmonious chime
The ancient, unending song
And the wolf and the frog sing along

The Queen of Forgotten Time
To find her the tower you climb
In the fable beyond the looking-glass
In the halls where stained soldiers march past

The Queen of Forgotten Time
Lives beyond the palace of knives
Where the blooms reach up to the sky
Where the bear and the rook will fly

Have a dance at the crystal ball
With the swans and the tower of dolls
To the beat of the miners who dig
Dance the weaver, the spinner, and the pigs

With the maiden who tempered the fiend
And the daughter of frost who had gleaned
And the child in the pearl-laden tower
Woven into the ebony bower

Beyond the hedge of the thorn
And under the edge of the storm
Sing the voices of infinite prime
For the Queen of Forgotten Time

Won’t you dance with the dragon at dawn?
And the troll when the sun’s almost gone?
A waltz for the unending rhyme
In the garden of Forgotten Time?

Thank you, I will probably use this, as my players want to learn more about this "Faerie Invasion" that the Dancing Lady, among others, is leading.

At least, that's what they think is happening.

I have to say that this is awesome, and I am going to use it in my game this week.

A very nice rhyme creation. My group has just hit Book 4 and i'm going to seed this to them soon. Thanks for the share!
