Butterflies and Fairies
I thought I saw a butterfly
land by our garden pond,
but I had never seen a butterfly
With a magic wand!
It seems it was a fairy
dressed in lavender and pink,
and feeling rather thirsty,
had stopped by for a drink.
“Do you care for some tea,” I asked,
while she chatted to the fishes?
“Perhaps another time,” she said,
“when I’m not busy making wishes.”
“But, thank you for your kindness,
can’t stop: must go! Goodbye!”
Like a bubble popping, vanished,
in the blinking of an eye.
