A Fairy Visit

A Fairy Visit

I heard a tap tap tapping  from my windowpane today.

I thought, “That crazy hummingbird!  He just won’t go away!”

Then turning for a look at him, I got a grand surprise!

A dainty fairy princess stood there right before my eyes.

She folded arms across her chest and bounced one tiny foot.

She glared at me as though upset, a haughty, royal look.

I know I must have stood there for long moments, such a shock!

She pointed to the casing,  then up to the window lock.

Silly me, I let her in.  She flew on gossamer wings.

She floated like a butterfly.  She jumped as though on springs.

She whirled around my kitchen, into every corner flew.

I said, “Excuse me, Hon, but can I do something for you?”

Never did she pay me mind, in her haughty royal way,

Dipping, whizzing across and under, Little Sunshine Ray.

Just when I thought myself insane (no one sees fairy girls),

I heard a squeal, a tinkling laugh, and up again she whirled.

She held a teeny, tiny pearl in royal fairy grip.

She smiled at me, as she flew by and outside quickly slipped.

I watched her flutter through my flowers and toss the pearl away,

To other out-stretched fairy hands as games they all did play.

I don’t know how the fairy ball got here  inside my house.

I’ve never so much heard a cricket or a stray field mouse.

But I know now that I must be as careful as I can,

To watch each place I step least I should crush some fairy then.

Very nice and whimiscal, Jessica!
Tell me, are you too becoming inspired by the pics you find while looking for pics to go with your poems? It's a vicious circle you know! We'll never get done! LOL.
