Beneath the Fairy Lights

The soft fairy lights

Make the midnight room glow

Like the love of a heart

Or an infant's smile

The wall is sprinkled with rainbow reflections

And the shadows of the dim room

Hold no malice

Wrapped in the comforting season,

A child lies in soft slumber

The glittering colors

Alighted softly on his cheek

As if brought by the soft sigh

Of a passing breeze

His eyelids flutter with dreams

When the shy rays of dawn

Settle on the frosted windowsill

His mother will lift him

From his warm bundle of blankets

She will watch him with eyes full of love

While they sit together in the fairy lights

As he reaches for the shiny, candy sweet paper

That hides unnamed treasures

Breathless with excitement.
