High a small garden grows

Sprouting near a quaint house

Nothing ever touched it

Except for the occasional quail and mouse.

 

There lived a small creature

No animal knew her name.

She just flitted around, day and night

Tending to the gardens leafy mane.

 

Wings grew from her mid-back

And spread out in a wave of green.

Animals, awed and marveled

At the tiny girls beauty and pristine

 

Her hair was soft like a roll of silk

And as russet as the dirt that lay beneath her

Her skin as pale as fresh milk

And soft as a dogs fur.

 

She wore only green leaves

Patched around her small frame.

With the beauty she held, the animals pondered

Why with rags so poor, she was never ashamed.

 

Day after day, the small girl worked

Making the flowers grow.

Irises, roses, Marigolds, all burst

Under the magic she held

 

Decades came by, and still

The small fairy worked.

Though the days passed, and time slipped by

Her snowy skin stayed unwrinkeled

 

Still today she works

Tending to the gardens lush foliage

You can see her work

Just go outside, and examine the flowers
