Saydie Belle's Fairies - Poem by Whitney Albright

Saydie Belle closed her sleepy blue eyes
And heard a song, to her suprise
So she tucked her blond curls behind her ears
And followed it closer so she could hear

Little Saydie left footprints on the dusty, yellow moon
Disappearing quickly from the month of June
To a place of lillys and jasmine in bloom
Still following that sweet little tune

She put her hands over her red blushing cheeks
Her mouth dropped before she could speak
For the sound she heard, that made those toots
Came from nine little fairies on their golden flutes

They played for her their cute soft song
And Saydie Belle danced all evening long
She laughed like heaven, she sung like spring
While they surrounded her flapping their tiny wings

And then a fairy looked into her eyes blue
And asked her if she'd like to be a fairy too
Saydie thought hard and she thought long
She tried to decide where she belonged

But she held out her palm for the fairies to land
She kissed each one in the palm of her hand
Then she skipped on, back the way she came
Leaving the tune that sounded the same

She ran back through the garden, jumped back over the moon
And then she walked back in the month of June
She had fun, yes she was well
For she loved just being little Saydie Belle

So, she opened her eyes and before she could speak
Her mommy kissed her rosy cheek
And she still hums the tune the fairies taught her there
And everyone still wonders how the lillys got in her hair
