It’s Five Minute Friday and I am back with a poem this week. Today’s poem is very whimsical, and if you haven’t guessed this about me yet, I am a person who loves a bit of “magic” and whimsy. It keeps me living inspired! A random fact about me is that I collect fairies-specifically fairies by Cicely Mary Barker, who happens to be a famous artist from England that did many illustrations of Flower fairies. My collection is pretty small at this point, as I started collecting them after having a magical fairy garden tea party for my 30th birthday! Sometime I will write an article sharing more about my love of fairies and my collection. Anyway, today’s word from Lisa Jo was AFTER, and I came up with a little fairy poem (my first poem about fairies actually!). The photo I included below is of the Christmas Tree Fairy (a gift last Christmas from my brother). So on to the poem then!
After a Summer’s Rain
A dewy sphere of dampened green
Beckons me to softly tread,
Barefoot across the tender blades
and over to the flower bed.
Where fairies live within the flowers
So small the eye can scarcely see,
But I , believing, catch a glimpse
Their hidden world revealed to me.
I watch them dance and drink the dew
With laughter like soft tinkling bells,
As if to say, “The rain has passed”,
Now all is well, now all is well!
And as I turned to walk away,
I swear I heard a whisper say-
“Belief’s the balm of all things seen,
The world belongs to those who dream!”
