Fairy Ball


Dancing through the night
Under pale moonlight
Looking up at twinkling starlight.

Swaying to and fro
Twisting ’round on painted toe,
At the ball tonight.

Held under pale moonlight
Are dancing Elves and Sprites
Swaying to and fro
The Faery Ball is a glittering delight.

Sheltering by blooming hedges,
Eyes wide in wonderment.
Lights from the moon,
Show the earth folk at play.

In full swing with wonderous sounds,
Tinkling laughs and flashes of color,
The Fairy Ball is at it’s height.

But young eyes have had their fill,
Slumber becons and hails them still,
Gentle whispers lull sleep in,
Child of night is left a dreaming.

Of whimsy, beauty and song most bright.
Of dresses and food and The Folk at play.
A ray of sunlight brings the child awake,
Remembering swaying to and fro,
Fairies twisting ’round on painted toe,
At the ball last night.
