Legend Of The Tooth Fairy - Poem by Elizabeth Lindberg

Once upon a midnight airy,
came a winged midget fairy,
dancing light and stayin loose,
until she came upon a tooth,
It gleemed in yonder midnight shine,
she said to self, now this is mine!
being such a silly girl,
she thought it was a giant pearl,
A sudden movement caught her eye,
to the left and to the right,
she stumbled then, and fell behind it,
that moving thing, it was a giant!
Scared she might become it's meal,
or catch her while she tried to steal,
that treasure and then run amuk,
she bowed her head and prayed for luck,
She shivered and then shook like jello,
then put a dollar by the pillow,
A legend thus was born that night,
She took the tooth and then took flight
