For Steve, To give to Lily

Steve, of Bullet Holes in the Mailbox has been, he says, chasing Lily, for the last six years. On St. Valentine's day he strewed her porch with candy love-hearts.

He's blogged her a poem, from 'The Last Unicorn', by Peter Beagle. I looked around my house, I thought... I have a Unicorn, somewhere, I'm sure. And if I could give that unicorn to Steve, for him to give to Lily, that might be a good deed.
It comes with a child who has inherited Queen Nefertiti's head, but she's no trouble at all, eats very little and is very quiet, and is of course a trained member of the unicorn-wrangler's guild.
