Fairy Wings

Fairy Wings

A Poem by

To soothe my crying child I said
'Look , here are wonderful things ,
a fairy gave to me for you ,
her pair of little wings',

and I showed her what I found by chance
from a cobweb nearby.
Two little brownish shiny wings
of a dragonfly.

with tender loving care
and with joy beyond a measure ,
with little hands , she took from me ,
her precious little treasure.

If she remembers till the time
when she's a little older
I am sure that she'd find
its untrue ,what I told her,

but till the day she comes to know
that such a thing there is ,
I would happily show her all
the dragonflies as fairies.

A beautiful and positive story. Us adults must be able to tell a tale to keep the children content and happy. You did. A outstanding poem.

Man, this is wonderful! You really round off the slant and feminine rhymes perfectly!

"but till the day she comes to know
that such a thing there is ,
I would happily show her all
the dragonflies as fairies. "

I wish I could give something more that a 100. Keep writing.

Ah but those memories will last her a lifetime. And all those small special touches will outlive you. I love this. It brings back so many memories.
