The Fairy of Motherhood

Have you heard about a certain fairy,
the one assigned to infants newly born?
Unseen, beside her precious charge she’ll tarry
softly crooning lullabies till morn.

She is the special fairy that is sent
to first-time mothers of a girl or boy, 
for when that harried fretting mom is spent,
and as the mother looks down at her joy,
the fairy sprinkles dust down from above.
The mother sighs and holds her baby near.
Those particles illuminate the love
expressed by mother cooing to her dear.

As fairies go, there simply is no other
as blessed as she who serves the child and mother.

    Andrea, i really like this poem! because you look into the mind set of Imagination? its like when your looking at artistic Drawing; and you begin to merge into the scene? and when i read your poem i found myself going into that imagery world. "this is Beautiful" your friend: John

    I think you did a fabulous job choosing mothers as a sort of fairy godmother here, Andrea. Best wishes in the fairy contest. As for how to recall which poems were entered in previous contests, I haven't a clue! Thanks for your comments. Love, Carolyn

    Awww, what a sweet tender piece, Andrea. A big winner for sure! Yes, my 'woods' poem was for the fairy contest. Hope all's well for you now. Sue's still on sick leave - she's just got another note from the Dr. Have a great weekend, my friend : ) I'll post this quickly before I get logged out again...
