Catching Fairies
Author: Catyrose


Place your tiny hand in mine
Together we shall travel over hill and dale
In search of the fairies, so fair
Come along now if you dare

Reach out and catch a fairie
As they float on by
Moonbeams lighting up the night sky
Whisking us away
To the land where fairie folk do play

Listen to their tunes upon the wind
Inviting us to join on in
Frolicking through the night we’ll dance and sing
Entranced by the fairies and their incandescent wings

Darling child we’ll play till dawn
Awakening safe and sound
Snuggled closely in our bed
Carefree and light hearted
N’er a sense of dread

Wide awake now
You’ll turn to me and smile
Recalling how we glimpsed the fairies
For just a little while

------- Author's Notes -------

For my grandaughter who believes in Fairies.

Never should we stop believing in the magical world that fairies belong. Growing older and wiser is best for who? not I. another great poem Kathy

Fiction is right down my avenue because you can go so many places, see so many things, meet so many people through the imagination. This poem was a visual one. Wonderful Caty, just wonderful!
