Thomas the Rhymer
by Ellen Kushner
Abducted by the Queen of Elfland, True Thomas, the brilliant Rhymer,
lives unaging with her in Faerie's inhuman splendor for years beyond count.
Finally, dazed with enchantment, Thomas is returned to the world of dirt
and work and passing time. Tormented by his memories and desiring nothing
but mortal life, he has only his harp and the Queen's parting gift: the
inability to speak anything but the truth.
