nothing can be truer than fairy wisdom. it is as true as sunbeams. – douglas william jerrold

we made a fancy house 

with

windows open wide

thinned the field

planted beautiful flowers

collected favorite things

painted magic rocks

decorated sticks

sprinkled 

treasures and sparkles

opened up a pumpkin patch

made the beds

welcomed

the curious bees 

and 

friendly butterflies

laid out a table

and invited them in. 

the fairies 

must have been watching

for they

moved into

their new little village

in the circle

right on our playground

and

we hope they’re here to stay. 

if a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.
