The Tale Of Faries



     A long, long time ago in the land of Fays,
     lived a forest nymph of beguiling beauty.
     
     Laila, the queen of the trees, an angel of joy,
     who's mere presence brought spirits to life.
     She was beloved by all the creatures of the 
     woods.  Her voice gave magic to sunlight.
     The wind from her step brought flowers to
     bloom.

     One day, while Laila was dancing through
     the scented grasses of the glade,
     a fanciful dragonfly, on his dutiful rounds,
     became enchanted by Laila's song.

     Being drawn by the scent of her happiness
     and after circling dizzily around her head,
     he lit right on the tip of her nose and 
     immediately started to jig.

     The sight of such glee so delighted Laila
     that she broke into uncontrollable laughter.
     As soon as it was heard it shattered into
     thousands of tiny moonbeams and from
     that, my little ones, Fairies were born.

    What a delightful narrative, Charlie! Meant for children, but I admit that it appealed to me, too. Hope it appeals to the contest judge, too. Regards // paul

    Good Morning, Charlie: Such a wondrous tale you have woven. A spirit like this really does exist to those who believe. I live in a forest setting and see the magic every day. Overnight here spring bulbs have sent up green shoots. I am adding this to my FAVS. It will secure a winning Place, Hugs, SuZ

    Cool fairy tale, Charlie. Made me feel like a kid again too like Winged Warrior said. Now can you conjure up a fair maiden to kiss this old frog, eh. Lol! Heartwarming poetry though. Brought a smile to my face. Love and peace.
