Fairy in a Dead Tree

Fairy in a Dead Tree

A Poem by MsJewel
"

a little fantasy

"

 

~~~ 

Leave her alone

Let her be

This fairy in a dead tree

 

To you she may be fast asleep

but in her dreams she may keep

the memory of a true love

of pale moonbeams where far above

the warmest light in graceful dance

weaves the night with romance

A lover’s kiss, a soft heartbeat

of someone who is warm and sweet

and she is wrapped in his embrace

as silver stars on wings of lace

are painting skies with poetry

above the greenest willow tree

and here his kiss has gently stirred

the melody of a songbird

perched on a branch way, way up high…

 

Did you know fairies can fly?

 

Perhaps it is only in dreams

the flight, the kiss, the bright moonbeams….

 

So leave her alone

Let her be

This fairy in a dead tree

~~~

What a unique title, I love titles that grab you right off the bat, I had to check if this was from your pen Julie, 'dead tree' huh? ;-) Anyway, I digress, this is a lovely little fantasy, we're all fairies in our own little world of dead trees, there we can fly high above the clouds where all the joy is...great one my friend!

ohhhhhhhhhhh such a sad but resilient fairy ... the title and your closing don't refelct the romance and dreams in between ..so the statement comes home with almost stark contrast ...the "leave her be" gives me halt...it is too natural to try to fix her ...plant her in that green willow or take her home to nourish her :(( i love faeries .. i have one tattooed on me arm among shamrock leaves and flowers ...;)

Well done .. could be the start of a Book !! ... You r welcome Julie :)
I hope her beau flies back to his lamenting love, then watch the dead tree rejuvenate and blossom to its former resplendent, as the little queen fairy awakens from her tranquil slumber!

An enchanting fairytale!

Thank you for your wonderful comment Mark! :) Julie
Wow, Julie. This is stunning! One of the most emotional and maybe one of your best poems I've ever read. This has a noteworthy touch of sadness and loss. I love this so much!

P.S. I love sad poems. The sadder, the better. Haha. ;)
