Even Fairies Must Rest

Written by: Sharon Ruebel



In a hollow of a tree

under branches resting she

a moss filled cozy place

where wishes can be traced

behind her tiny eyes

she dreams of lullabies
 
her lovely wings are still

the sun removes her chill

the butterflies watch over

as they fly above the clover

making sure while she is sleeping

that her safety's in good keeping

upon her shoulders it does fall

a dainty little spiders shawl

woven with such love and care

of natures gifts none can compare

soon she will awake and flee

back into natures harmony

for now she dreams her fairy tales

all gold and glitter behind her trails...
