A Fairy Tale

A Fairy Tale By the Poets Listed After the Poem Once upon a time, long-long ago there was a wishing star. She, unlike a billion other bright shining stars, was magic. Bored with her galaxy, she began to wander far away. Streaking through the atmospheres was very hot, but not tragic. Pausing to wonder with much time to ponder, she cast her spell. “Tiny goblins on Halloween, by light one wish I will grant.” Who should be the recipient of this very special wish? Earth children roaming streets that night in one hand my gift, I'll plant. Oh who should receive my amazingly special gift of light? So many young ones, in who's humble heart this wish I could grant. Out of all the precious children that have come within my sight. The child who has the purest wish is the one I will enchant. I'll sprinkle on my chosen one, crystal glitters, gold balloons. A ride follows to fairyland, ending on the golden moons. With a magical flight through a rainbow high where dreams come true, And a house of candies in the land of Marshmallow-Lagoons... Oh, that magical light shining through sweet cotton candy clouds, Her wish she may...her wish she might...there's one ghoul she'll bless that night. Of princesses, fairies and goblins, a good heart will be found. Quickly child, make your pure wish, before the magic star takes flight.

Hi Collaborators, (And friends, of course) Thanks to each of you for making this imaginative Fairytale possible. Wishing star, purest wish, enchantment, golden moon, Marshmallow-lagoons, cotton candy clouds and everything in between was very creative. You are super! I was also impressed with the way we used the poetic form quatrain even though each verse was written by two different poets. That's not always easy. GREAT JOB!!!! Love to you all. Lovingly, Dane Ann
