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.
