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.

Goody Goody Gumdrop

Goody goody gumdrop
A Fairy and a lollypop
Sweet as they can be,
Underneath a tree.

Colorful and sparkling
Make me want to dance and sing;
Laugh and jump and play,
Melt my cares away.

Fairy, Fairy

Fairy, fairy, so depressed,
Too weary to get up and dressed,
Staying there in bed all day
Will never get you better pay.

Fairy, fairy, you must try,
Even if you have to lie
And tell yourself things are okay
When they really just don't feel that way.

Fairy, fairy, in your heart
You know you have to play the part
Until the life is manifest
That makes you feel your very best.

So go ahead and make your day,
There really is no other way;
It's up to you, your very self,
To rise and wake your inner elf.

Make the magic...just believe
You still have tricks stashed up your sleeve;
Set a smile upon your face,
That will help you find the grace.

Believing is what makes it so,
As was said so long ago;
Take the stage, and do it now,
Play your part and take a bow.

Fairy, fairy, rise and shine!
The world is yours, don't sit and whine;
Find the glitter, seek the glow,
Let it fill you, head to toe.

Fairy, fairy, it is time,
To make your inner world sublime;
The outer world will fall in line,
Go plant your magic beanstalk vine!

Soft as Snow

Soft as snow the fairies came,
Flittered to and fro;
Light as gossamer they sang,
‘Twould make your heart to glow.
Sparkling hair and tiny wings
Twittered all around;
And their little tippie toes
Never touched the ground.
All around us every day
Their magic still abounds;
So hush the noise and listen to
Their lovely fairy sounds!

An Unfair Fairy

What is a fairy
When it isn't fair?
Does it become an unfairy?

Why does a fairy
Refuse to share?
Has it become uncarey?

Who tells the unfairy
What is not fair?
Is their a fairness fairy?

Does the unfair fairy
Even care?
Is it unawarey?

If the unfairy
Begins to care,
Is it then more fairy?

The Pondering Fairy

Alone a fairy sits
In the evening light,
Pondering the world
And the coming night.

What makes the stars,
And whence the sun;
Who invented laughter
And having fun?

Is the forest silent
When nobody's there;
Is there really a world
Where all can share?

Deep in thought
She nods her head,
Thinking it's time
To go to bed.

So off she goes
In pursuit of dreams,
Hoping for answers
Among the moonbeams.

The Midnight Fairy

The midnight fairy
Hovers between
The day to come
And the one that's been.

Balanced on the edge
Of future and past,
The present moment
Cannot last.

Like the fae
It's here and gone;
Another one comes
To carry on.

Yet the midnight
Will again appear,
And so will the fairy
We hold so dear.

Fairies in the Wind

A soft breeze blows
O'er the garden wall;
The flowers sway,
One and all.

Above them the fairies
Fly all around,
Leaving only their shadows
Upon the ground.

Behind them, sparkles
Fill the air,
On this warm sunny day
Without a care.

The lovely wind,
The sparkling fae,
It's all so magic
In a wonderful way.

The Most Beautiful Fairy

The fairies had a contest
To find the one most fair,
The one whose awesome beauty
Had none that could compare.

They all got so excited,
Who would the winner be?
Would it be another fairy,
Or could it even be me?

There was lots of primping,
Curling and flowing hair,
Fancy wings and dresses,
All done up with such care.

When finally the time arrived,
The prize-awarding day,
They all agree who the winner was:
A brand new baby fae!

The Summer Fairies

Early in the day the fairies rise,
Wipe the sleep from their morning eyes;
Have a breakfast of sparkles and dew,
Then go out to the garden, their work to do.

As the sun rises high, their lunch they eat,
Then lie in the shade for a little sleep;
As the bees buzz around their sleepy heads,
Fallen flower petals are their soft little beds.

In the afternoon again they awake,
Put away their tools so they don't rust or break;
And now is the time to dance and play,
So, to the woods, without delay!

Here among the trees so green,
Where the air is cool, is the fairy queen;
Together they make a merry time,
With fairy dances and songs sublime.

And as the sun begins to set,
The fairies prepare for the sweetest time yet;
They build a warm and cosy fire
To cook their dinner on before they retire.

Around its warmth and lovely smell,
They sit in a circle, and tales they tell,
Of sparkles and magic and butterfly wings,
Of mystery and wonders, and all kinds of things!

When their bellies are full, and the fire dies down,
It's time to go home to a soft nightgown;
They bid goodnight to their queen so fair,
And home they go in the crisp night air.

In their beds all safe and warm
They dream sweet dreams until the dawn;
And again they wake to a summer's day,
To work and laugh and dance and play!

The Little Lost Fairy

One day I heard a crying noise
Like a kitten newly born,
The sound was so mysterious
And very much forlorn.

I looked around the garden
Until finally I found
A tiny little fairy
Hiding on the ground.

She sat upon a fallen leaf,
Tears fell from her eyes,
Her shoulders shook with sobbing,
I could not stop her cries.

So I sang her a sweet lullaby
My mother sang to me,
And patiently I waited
Beneath a shady tree.

When all her tears had fallen,
She wiped her little face,
Opened up her tiny eyes,
And looked about the place.

Her face was filled with puzzlement,
For she had no idea
Just exactly where she was,
Or how she'd gotten here.

While picking juicy berries
For a tasty little pie,
She'd somehow wandered off too far
She told me with a sigh.

How to get back home again
Perplexed the fairy so,
For which way home and mother were
She really didn't know.

A tiny little fairy,
So lost and all alone,
Too young to be so far away,
Of course I'd help her home!

Together we went looking
Till finally we found
A worried fairy mother
Crying the saddest sound.

Finally reunited,
They hugged, and cried, and laughed,
And baked a yummy berry pie,
The tears all in the past.

The Simple Country Fairy

She helps with all the milking,
And lightens all the chores,
All the while she's singing;
Soap suds she adores!

She's oh so very helpful,
And makes the work day fun;
I never see her resting,
From morn till setting sun.

I love my little fairy
Who helps me all the day,
My lighthearted companion,
A simple country fae.

Fairy on My Windowsill

A fairy came to me one day,
Sat on my windowsill,
Folded up her wings and sat
Very, very still.

I wondered at her presence there,
What she came to see,
And I wondered, most of all,
Why she'd chosen me.

She never said a single word,
Just looked me in the eye,
Then suddenly was up and gone,
And didn't say goodbye.

A Fairy's Treasure

Hidden in the forest deep
Is a fairy's secret treasure,
Magic gems of emerald green
And softest, clearest azure.

Away from peering eyes she keeps
Her bright enchanted stones,
Along with other keepsakes
And some very special wishbones.

To keep her prized possessions safe
From those she cannot trust,
She sprinkles on the rocks and flowers
Protective fairy dust.

And when it is the proper time
She takes from her precious store
A bit of something mystical
To help a spirit soar.

For she isn't at all greedy
In storing up her treasure;
It's saved for times of truest need,
Then given in generous measure.

The Cloud Fairies

Look up at the clouds one day
Tell me what you see there;
A child upon a tricycle,
An elephant, a bear?

When I look at clouds I see
The magic of the fae
Floating on the gentle breeze
All along the way.

In every shape and size they come,
They sit, they dance, they fly;
Appear and then just fade away,
Way up in the sky.

How I'd like to join them,
Float upon the air;
Come and go as soft winds blow,
All without a care!

The Too Bad Fairy Boy

Look out for that fairy,
He is up to no good;
He's flying all over
The whole neighborhood
Playing his pranks
And stirring up trouble;
Let's all try to get him
Away on the double!
For he isn't a kind
Or a good little fae,
He's bound and determined
To ruin your day!
While we don't mind
One small joke or another
He's really too much,
And I tell you, oh brother,
You better watch out
For that dastardly one;
His jokes, put it simply,
Are no kind of fun.
I think we will manage,
We'll all be just fine,
If we don't have to wonder
Who's lurking behind,
Just waiting to startle
With mischief and mayhem.
I tell you, quite truly,
We'll be happier without him!
Go away, you bad fairy,
We don't want you 'round here.
Then poof! He just vanished,
And the air became clear.

The Fairy's Song

All the day long
The fairy sings
Her song,
And in the night
Her tune is pure
Delight.

When she feels glum
And music just
Won't come,
She gives a sigh
As the long hours
Roll by.

Let's raise the tune
And she will join
Us soon;
To fill her heart
She only needs
A start.

Her voice will lift
And out will come
Her gift:
The melody
That fills our hearts
With glee.
