Hump Day Poetry – Week 7 – Fairies in My Garden


There are fairies living in my garden

I see them there each day

Such wondrous sights they share with me

Of fairy lights and fairy spells.

I’ve come to know them one and all

The Dew twins, April and May

Are as mischievous as you could imagine.

My favourites are the Fern Fairies

Who live among my many ferns

Turning magic into art.

They transform me to their minute size

Show me games and fairy ways.

The price I pay is their welfare

For I stay silent of their presence.

I was anointed their protector

By Fernister, the grand Fairy

Who made me swear to keep them safe

A task I take most boldly.

So every day I venture down

To the microcosm of their busy world

Some days they want me in

Some days I stand outside.

It’s Easter in a day or two

They celebrate with lights

And strange golden orbs

That glow and dance about.

I can’t wait to go back in

And join in the Fairy harvest feast.

    Love your fairy tales, Michael.
    Not sure what’s happening, but nothing happens when I click “Like.” Maybe when I post the comment it will show up 😦
