It's the reality of the times we're living in...
that no child believes in fairy tales except for Lyn
who didn't grow up too fast in the age of technology;
perhaps she and the Baby Boomers still seek that Fairy.
On the outskirts of town, there was a lovely pond
where Lynn met the beautiful Fairy towards dusk
when the bright sun rays mixed with her glowing dust...
until it turned into thousands butterflies that flew around!
One early evening the beautiful Fairy didn't come and Lynn thought she was sick,
and was about to leave the bench holding back her the flow of tears...
when suddenly she appeared over the pond in her stunning blue dress made of silk,
" Turn around, child..I have a few minutes left to listen to your dreams! "
" I'm glad that you came, Fairy...I told other children about your magical powers,
but they don't believe in them because they read them in those fairy tales! "
Lynn replied with a sad glow in her pretty eyes. " If only one believes them,
I grant them all their wishes....don't you still believe in the magic I perform? "
Lyn glanced at her and whispered as if she had little confidence in her friends,
" I certainly do, Fairy and I'll try to convince them..will they make fun of me? "
But the fairy boosted her confidence by speaking positive, confident words,
" Tell them that seeing is believing and they will come! They must believe in me! "
