    Saw your Forest Sprite II and had to come to visit this one as well. Both are sweet, enchanting little poems, and like some of your other readers said, lovely to read to the grandchildren, which I will do. But even Grandmas can believe in fairies!

    Love, Fran xx

    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 (Report) Reply

    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.

    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. (Report) Reply

    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 (Report) Reply

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