Fairy Laume and Me

All things are as they should be
When first touched by the Laume fairy
She enters your soul, and then your heart
And finds a way to become a part
Of your life

I first found her on wisp of wind
Then a story or two of her begin
I found she was I and we belonged
In the heart of her true song
Of my life

Her fates followed me all around
In her silence, there was nary a sound.
However, by placing herself in my way,
She has found a place to stay
In my life

She found me in a sideways store
Where odds and ends were sold and more;
She caught my eye, then called again
I picked her up, for she was then
In my life

I carried her around with me
Lighter than light, my Laume fairy
She grew more precious with every step
For in my heart she had leapt
Toward my life

A grace wise now hovers over me
Her closed eyes seek prayer’s reverie
Her wings are tattered with the weight
Of all that matters from the fates
Of our life

She insisted that I receive her well
As she cast upon me her fairy’s spell
For receiving is considered yet a gift
As in giving to others is such a lift
In their life

Do you suppose a muse may possibly find
A way to bring echoes of heart to mind
Will she allow me more joy in giving?
That I may find in my days of living
This wonderful life

She says, “Yes.”

Thank you, Joyce. It seems that she and I haven't had enough time for one another lately; I tend to rectify that matter, in whole, and with much heart!

Thank you all for your comments. An old poem, but a favorite one, as I did it for a dear friend in times past.

Merry Christmas, All!
