Watching Fairies Dance - Heading .jpg


By Josie Whitehead

Watching Fairies Dance

I saw you dancing noiselessly
     In the shadows of the dark.
I saw you dancing brightly
     In the moonbeams of the park.

I watched you dancing beautifully
     Beneath the trembling trees
With other tiny fairy folk
       Who waltzed upon the breeze.

I saw you dancing joyously
     Upon a rainbow’s beams,
Casting down your twinkling lights
      Upon those chattering streams.

I watched you dance bewitchingly,
     With lightness and with grace –
But you fairy-folk - not one of you,
     Ever once beheld my  face.

I watched you dancing gracefully
     Upon the bright sunbeams -
But I sometimes think that fairy folk
     Dance only in our dreams.
