Forest Sprite Poem by Linda Ori

Forest Sprite

Rating: 3.4

There was a little fairy
Sat beneath a tree -
Humming to her tiny self
A haunting melody;
Just a little tinkle
Was all that I could hear
Floating on the evening breeze
High and crystal clear;
Surrounded by a rainbow,
Sparkles lit the air -
Tiny wings did flutter
Sprinkling gold dust in her hair;
A tiny little forest sprite
Had slipped the bonds of space,
Perhaps a mere imagined thought
Had brought her to this place;
How sweet the sound she echoed
Within this forest spot -
Though I had never seen a sprite
Her image now I caught;
This tiny little fairy
Sat beneath a tree -
Humming to her tiny self
A haunting melody.

Absolutely charming Linda, and for my money, would stand out as a children's classic. (Unlike my imp!) Danny

Linda, this is just magically perfect. I can just imagine it as a poem in an illustrated children's fairytale book; though your portayal is so detailed, little illustration needed! t x

What a lovely, enchanting nice piece - this wonderful poem of yours. It is truly divine! The more often one reads it, the clearer one gets a feeling for the presence of such endearing sprites like the one in your forest.

This should be set to music. I could almost hear the sounds of the dirgeful bagpipes accompanied by a melodic violin. I agree with Erhard, it is divine. Amy

Linda this is adorable, written with magic and sparkle in true fairy tale fashion. It reminds me of my little threes and fours dancing to Vivaldi with toadstools and tiny wands. Loved it. Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
