Esmeralda

Esmeralda and the fairies

Esmeralda in her garden
Was playing with her dolls
Amidst flowers so beautiful
And the sun shone down like gold.
Midst butterflies and pretty birds
And trees that softly glowed
She saw two fairies oh so pretty
As one sat upon a toad.

The toad did look so happy there
With the fairy on his back.
They came up to a pretty rose
By a little grassy track
Then one fairy danced a dance
Little heart all filled with bliss
As Esmeralda felt such love
And so much happiness.

The other fairy started dancing
As the toad just clapped his hands
 Esmeralda watched it all
Oh she thought it was so grand
But when she told her mum and dad
Well, they just laughed at her
And told her it’s imagination
That it did not occur.

    Nice, I do like your rhythmical flow. Do you have to sweat over your rhymes like I do? I will ask if you might consider adding a "so" before the "grand"?

    Thank you Scott; no rhyme comes quite naturally to me, I even have this habit of talking in rhyme sometimes, I don't know why. You were so right about the so before the grand, thank you for pointing this out to me, I appreciate this....Peter
