The Faeries

Bracken breached hawthorn hedgerows
hide teeny folk with tiny toes.
Sheer gossamer wings; shy butterflies
Dew-drops lit by dawning skies.

Sandy hair, blue raven locks
Auburn streaks on chestnut stalks
Valley lilies invert to hats
Wee portabella mushroom caps.

Acorn shoes with resin soles
Lace gartered legs and leafy shawls
Dresses spun from brushed lime silk,
petal pinks, or white as milk.

Impish grins stoke laughing smiles.
whimsy’s sound sets music’s tiles
Curious eyes, small budded nose
cream tinted skin, pink cheeks aglow.

They live near boles of ancient trees
Drink nectar from a hollowed seed
They climb the stems of hollyhocks
They twitter but will rarely talk.

So when you take a morning stroll
pause beside to a sun-lit knoll  
The calls you hear mightn’t be birds
and cricket strums won’t mimic words.

    Dear Mikki, I have to stop myself from reading all your posts in one go I want this feeling of awe to last forever. Every one I read is so perfect in form and creates such pictures in my mind your words weave magic. I call Eileene enchantress you I name as one of the mousai. Happy Valentine's Day my wonderful friend. May your day be filled with love and happiness. Love Shane xxx

    "Tip toe through the tulips........." Remember Tiny Tim? This doesn't make me an admirer of old Tim, but the quaint sensation is what your poem is all about. Right? Mikki, you are at your best in this sort of vision. I absolutely adore your work. Such talent is so rare. Big love, daver

    Curious that I should stumble on this one, when I have recently celebrated the little folk in my own submission! :-)

    ‡ Enchanting As Straight From The Page In A Fairytales Scene ? Hey Beautiful Michelle, Sooo Happy That Your Loveliness Dropped A Note Amid The Box In Com * I Don't Know But I Feel Kind Of Like Winona Ryder In 'Girl Interrupted' As Of Recent Days ? Maybe Its The Weather Or Just The Fact That, Well, Sooo Much Beauty; Kind Of Overwhelms Myself Sometimes ? I Love This Wonderful, Brilliant & Light-Hearted Pleasant Verse As Most Surely I Also Do, Beautiful Fairy Girls * My Luv, Rachel ‡
