There are Fairies at the bottom of my garden

There are Fairies at the bottom of my garden And they visit every evening, for a dance They are lovely to behold and very welcome I just wish they didn’t trample on my plants Their favourite dance appears to be the Salsa They do it with such style and aplomb Much better than last week when they were jivin’ It appeared they’d hit the garden with a bomb So I do believe in Fairies, ‘cos I’ve seen them And every night I watch them, in a trance They are graceful and delightful and enchanting “Oi, Tinkerbell, get off my bloody plants” © John W Fenn 14-07-2009
