British Columbia, Canada
LONG AGO fluttered two tiny fairies.
They lived in the trunk of a tree.
So content in their itty, bitty space,
As comfy as two wee fairies could be.
Sugar, was fat as an elephant's hat,
And Lemon was as thin as a dime;
They managed to live in great harmony,
In that hollow tree, covered with vines.
One night a loud crash woke them up.
A horrible bump and thump in the night.
Their beds started rocking and shaking,
In their window streamed a bright light!
"Oh my!" said Sugar, "A star's stuck in our tree!"
They ran into the night to see what they could see.
"Letís think now before this night turns to day,
Of a plan," Lemon said, "To set the star free."
Fluttering up that tree they flew to the top,
They pushed and pushed with all of their might,
But that star wouldn't budge Ė no, not an inch,
How could they send it back up into the night?
Other stars crowded around, watching and wishing,
The commotion brought over the man in the moon.
Sugar scratched her head, THEN came up with a plan,
And started quickly blowing up all her balloons.
"What on earth are you doing you silly fairy?"
Lemon cried, "Now is not the time to play!"
Sugar said, "Come on, start blowing and hurry,
Letís get this star stuck in our tree on its way!"
Sugar blew balloons up as fast as she could.
Lemon searched the forest both near and far,
Looking for spider webs to spin into threads,
Well, then...they tied those balloons to that star.
They pushed and pushed, and set the star free,
And up, up, it floated away into the sky,
Now every night that star shines ever so brightly
Winking at Sugar and Lemon as it slowly flies by.
If you believe as I do in all fairies, and,
If you watch the sky very carefully each night,
You will see that fairies really do exist
As your special star winks at you in its flight.
