Esmeralda

Esmeralda and the fairies

Esmeralda in her garden
Was playing with her dolls
Amidst flowers so beautiful
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 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.

    Hi Peter, another fine write from you. But the little one knew it was not imagination, it was childhood magic. I hope you and Vera are doing well my friend. Couldn't get on the laptop at all on |Sunday and only a little yesterday. As always Peter, your piece just sings along in its wonder. Indeed my friend, this is worthy of a 7. I always like the way one can almost sing the words, there is such a musicality there. This takes me back to childhood thoughts. Soon be Christmas day here my friend.

    Think you so much Michael. I write most of my poems with some kind of a melody in my head because I have always written ballads and put them to music, and they just come out like this. There is always music singing within me. I thank you so much for your very kind comments, my friend...peter
