Evening Spirits - Poem by Candy Kelly

Once upon an evening dry, when Spring time temps soared high
I poured a glass of whimsy, and laid a lullaby.
As a sweet breeze swung me, I closed my eyes to rest
Those I’d only heard of, became my evening guest
The sandman sat across from me, Nor-wester to my right
Mother-nature graced my left and
in attempt of merriment the moon deserted night.
We chorused songs we knew by heart, ate pastries from the South of France
Watched fairies play Shakespearean parts as the toads leapt up to dance.
Suddenly there appeared a prince, from whence had stood a frog.
I watched the birth of Christ and felt the love of God.
Oh, I laughed to see the spirits,
Such wonderment did bring
And all because I fell a nap, in the eventide of Spring.
