Tiny fairies and Spanish elms

 

 

 

I laughed at their smiling faces,

And cried over the three graces.

I reflected with somber thought,

at the folly that my thoughts had brought.

For I had danced into a mystical realm,

Fit with fairies perched on Spanish elms.

A place where flowers did wiggle and sing,

a land where serpents smiled, and bore wing.

Oh, what is this place that placates my mind,

with its lolley golly… and springtime wine.

Oh, how too should I explain?

That upside down does it rain.

For it does not fall down from the winking sky,

But rises from the purple rocks

that roll to and fro…side by side.

Oh pleasant and fragrant is this dream I see,

as it removes the nasty grit of my reality.

Yet, I know not how I came unto this place,

Nevertheless, I cherish this visit by unseen grace.

For it is here in this mystical realm,

That I truly believed in tiny fairies perched on Spanish elms

This reminds me of a movie, "Fern Gully" I believe it was. It was then I knew that even trees breathe the breath of God. So does your writing of this.

Delightful! I love mystical realms and this poem plopped me right into the midst of one! I enjoyed.

A nice world to visit Al and always so because we are unable to anticipate all the happenings or even suspect them as in this world, so I would guess that would be a relaxation, maybe that is why you have come to the land of many legends, ty al
