A group of four poems and three short stories that all deal with magic of sorts. It starts with a poem called "Raindrop Waltz," a whimsical take on nature.

The poem is about a young creature called a flerd and his search for meaning and joy. Next is a story about a sailor's adventures. His ship wrecks, and people from an island help him and his crew get back under way, but there's something strange about that island! After "The Imaginary Island" is the poem "Dandelion Fluff," a musing on childhood. The third story, "Dragon Light," is about magic from a dragon's point of view.
