A Fairy named Twinkle

~ Find here a poem read throughout the ages, passed down from elders to youngsters below A mystical rhyme with a fairy tale ending that maybe is true but we really don’t know Perhaps just a legend, the town folk all chuckle as children run off through the forest each night In hopes they will capture a glimpse of the magic a small dancing fairy so happy and bright ~~~~~~~ A fairy named twinkle, the month of November, when twilight comes calling in grey flannel hues As evergreens rest with their branches a’ shimmer and winter reflects in these cold weather views While there in a clearing, the fairy she dances as sparkles go flitting aloft in the air Her wings all a flutter in snowflakes of glitter, the woods come alive on this evening to share The stars in the heavens all mirror her image, like glimmering sequins in silver and gold Orbiting gems on a black velvet skyline, a wonderful gift for the scene to behold When chipmunks and rabbits and deer start to gather all wearing a smile at this beauty they see This fairy named twinkle who spins as she offers her November dance oh so delicately The moon shining full sends its beams down around her, illumines her movements, a soft evening glow While squirrels with acorns sit up in the treetops, the best seats they find for this magical show Then just as it started, so soon it is over, as footsteps are heard on a path winding through The fairy named twinkle departs in an instant as children approach so in hope of a view ~~~~~~ So there now you have it, the poem of Twinkle her November dance when the evening is new But is she for real or just imagination I can’t really say, I’ll leave that up to you
