It’s Friday and you know what that means! Inspiration in the form of Poetry in Five. I have quite the treat for you today-sure to make you smile! If you need a touch of whimsy and magic in your world today to lighten your mood, this one is for you. I am thinking of working on a children’s style picture poetry book with fairy and fantasy poems in which today’s rhyme would be included. We shall see! Linking up with the wonderful people at Lisa Jo Baker’s 5 minute Fridays where we all write on the same word for 5 minutes each week without backtracking. This week’s word is TOGETHER.
When Fairies Gather Together:
When fairies dance together
It’s such a lovely sight,
Collectively they twinkle
As one large orb of light!
If you’ve ever heard a tinkling sound
like chimes or little bells
‘Tis the fairies laughing
as they cast their little spell.
For when Fairies gather together
The Magic-it begins,
‘Tis time for Merry making
As they dance to violins.
Their gaiety they spread like fire
to all who wander near,
Lightening hearts and spreading smiles
and filling all with cheer.
It’s just the fairy way you see-
these playful little sprites,
are like a candle to the soul-
Lighting up the darkest nights.
They dance and dance round and round
until the music ends,
For now their magic is complete
And their dinner feast begins.
They drink their fairy nectar
and clink their little cups,
Toasting to ALL of life
Before it’s time to sup.
Next time your heart feels lighter
and you feel the urge to smile,
Or a giggle rises up in you
after such a long, long while,
That you scratch your head in wonderment,
‘Cause you can’t quite figure why,
You’ve stumbled in to a fairy land
Not seen by the naked eye!
