Little People

Little People

A Chapter by Dave Brown

ebb and flow


In the garden digging

To plant an apple tree

Seeing something strange there

I got down on one knee


It was a little man I saw

And he was climbing further down

I dug more and more to follow him

Until I came across a little town


Many little people

Were walking to and fro’

And I asked one little soul

Where did they come and go


Apparently, these were the folks

That kept all plants growing

Watching carefully where went

The seeds that we were sowing


Then an underground route

Was dug from root to root

That they could address the needs

Of each vegetable, tree and fruit


I left them there with their task

Of making all things grow

As they, just as we

React to nature’s ebb and flow

This was such a cute little poem! Little fairies that keep the garden alive. Each plant, different and unique like people, for they are also living beings. Thanks for sharing, I loved this!

we need all the help we can get so I was glad to see them on the job
thanks for visit
Truly a beautiful expression of the Fae folk that make the flowers bloom and dust the dew upon the leaves. But they're Trixie little guys, sure they'll help you make some shoes and make your apples grow but do not attempt to cross them lest unfortune they bestow.
I know of fairy whispered upon your ear to create this poem. As I know only a poet could hear that whisper.

we always enjoy his .. read more
This is cute. I can see this as a little picture book. I wonder if they are related to the fairies and sprites.
