Zelda's Inferno exercise: "beautiful and terrible"

Zelda's Inferno exercise (first in several weeks, due to being on the road): poem from the following list of words, generated from the theme "invisible stuff":

ego, wind, ghosts, fear, misconceptions, thread, some faeries, breath, cycle, gravity, lust, disease, joy, magnetism, oxygen, routines

this beautiful planet will
kill you dead
without a backwards glance

beautiful and terrible
ancient people personified it with faeries
some kind, some deadly
all to be respected
like gravity
or the winds of a storm

a joy and a mystery to behold but
quite capable of crushing a human body
don't fear but do respect
the fae are not Tinkerbell, what a misconception!
closer to think Robin Goodfellow, Puck, that shrewd and knavish sprite
a lust for mischief
as impersonal as magnetism

so keep your ego in check and
respect the good people
