I Believe in Fairies

Sometimes I feel their presence
Other times I can see them in my garden
Little wings gently flapping
As they hover in mid air
Doing what they were decreed to do
Tending the leaves on the trees whole day

And as the day progresses
They quiet down
Softly singing and dancing
As they get ready for sunset
When they will settle down
Some fairies will bow their heads
Before they lay their heads to rest
Others will keep watch over the garden
Taking turns to rest throughout the night

For every leaf that falls in autumn
A little fairy disappears and the colours fade
Happy to go into the light
Leaving Winterís reaper to block the sun
All the other fairies stay behind to tend the evergreens

Until Spring time and new leaves sprout
The little fairies magically re-appear
It is a time of merriment
Happy chatter and laughter
Drinking nectars and fresh morning dew
Building their strength for when the seasons change
Singing and dancing as they go about their work

Their songs of praise fill the air
Boys and girls will hear the fairies murmur in the breeze
Is this story I will tell one day
To little children who will come out to play
