Snow Faries - Poem by T. R. Crissian
Merry Christmas everyone! I just wrote this poem today (Christmas Eave)
Enjoy the new poem....
Once when I was a young child,
I used to play about in the snow,
Then I thought I saw a fairy flit by,
Was it a trick of the light? Ah, no,
Twas a real snow fairy- I smiled.
Christmas eave at midnight I lie awake in bed,
Thinking about those fairies,
Then I saw a white flash-
I dashed down the steps to the Christmas tree-
There were the fairies placing presents and trying a red sash!
I watched the fairies at work,
They were so tiny and so cute!
Some decorated the tree, others sparked up the fire,
One little redhead flitted 'round my head playing a flute.
Christmas morning I awoke and raced down the steps to the tree,
There sat my mother, my father and my brother,
There sat my aunt and uncle drinking tea.
I rushed to my uncle and cried, 'Last night I saw fairies! '
My parents and my brother smiled and my aunt laughed,
But my uncle looked at me,
A twinkle in his eyes he said, 'Balderdash! '
