Fairy Houses - Poem by Elisabeth Anne Wingle

Have you ever seen a fairy?
It's a fact, most never do
They only dance at midnight.
When the moon is dark and new.

Would you like to catch a fairy?
It is not that hard to do.
Build a tiny little house.
And they will come find you!

Would you like to fly with fairies?
You must be sincere and true.
For only a sweet child's eyes.
Could see them as they flew.

Would you like to meet a fairy?
In a very proper way?
You could ask her in for tea.
But, don't count on her to stay!

    it's a fairly nice-looking fairy house. any takers? do you have one in green?

    i like the poem as well. and i would like to fly like fairies if they fly as well as birds fly. yes, yes, yes!

    but i draw the line at eating fairy food! ! i'll eat Angel Food Cake, but NOT Fairy Food: grass seeds broiled,
    fly legs roasted, spider eggs raw. yuck.

    bri :)

    nice rhyming.
