Somewhere In Fantasy Land Waiting In Fantasy Land - Poem by Heather Burns

As I gazed into the distance
from out of nowhere a tiny
person appeared, he called
my name over and over again.

Yarro, Yarro!

A name from my childhood
I was taken back to another
place in time.To another
love devine.

Days of laughter romping
through green meadows,
lying in his strong arms
kissing his face tenderly

oh face of yesterday!

Suddenly this little fairy
took flight, landing on my
finger.Grabbed a hand full
of fairy dust, tossed it
in my eyes.I was temporarily
blinded.

As I opened my eyes a garden
of beautiful roses appeared.
One rose more lovely than the
other. As I viewed the scene
to my surprise nestled in the
blossoms,

sat the flowers of my heart!

Red, yellow, pink, white and
coral roses making
up my hearts bouquet.

Waiting for my return

Sitting in the far distance,
I noticed a black rose, rare,
new and handsome. Could this
be my fairy man? waiting for
me in fairy land.
