Twilight Fairy

When purple twilight starts to fall
The nightingale begins to call
And as its song it gently sings
A wondrous sight it always brings

Softly through the still of night
On sparkling wings in graceful flight
She comes drifting through the trees
Dancing gently on the breeze

Oh fairy maiden lightly fly
And pirouette ‘cross twilight sky
Gathering moonlight in your cup
With one quick scoop you fill it up

A pinch of stardust that you’ll find
With angels breath it is combined
Mix it with the morning dew
And make your wondrous fairy stew

Then with the rising of the sun
Home you fly to your little one
Who welcomes you, arms open wide
To eat the meal which you provide

And there within the forest deep
You cuddle up and go to sleep
But you will waken without fail
When softly sings the nightingale

As light of day begins to fade
And evening starts its serenade
I’ll wait to see your dance so airy
Lovely little twilight fairy

Steve, you are such a master at rhyme.  These lyrical lines are enchanting and lovely.  A bit of fairy dust is good for us all.  And you share your magical evenings!   ~ Klassy

Much as I´ve grown to hate rhyming, here it strikes home.

It gives one a good feeling to recite this aloud.

There are moments I feel my heart has hardened, then someone comes along and places words before my eyes, and they are christened with tears.
Lovely.
