Fairies in the Storm

A fierce storm is upon us,
We do not dare to fly;
Raindrops pelt down on the earth,
Lightning falls from the sky.

Huddled beneath a toadstool,
Shivering under a flower,
We try to pass the time away
Hour by tedious hour.

Will the sun come out at last
And darkness turn to day?
Will the black clouds dissipate,
Or ever blow away?

Here we sit with wings gone limp
From damp and heavy air,
Waiting for the storm to pass
And end our dark despair.

There's hope still for the fairies,
For those with tender hearts;
Deep within we know it:
The true light ne'er departs.
