Fairy Advice



If fairies flit around your ear
And whisper words, then disappear
Can you say you truly hear
I simply do not know

Their words are soft and oh so sweet
Like candy for your ears; a treat
I hear they make your life complete
With advice as they go

I think a fairy came to me
And whispered words to set me free
I turned my head but could not see
As my heart began to glow

Should I laugh and blush with shame
The fairy seemed to speak your name
She told me I should play your game
And let my feelings show

I want to listen, I truly do
The words she spoke of me and you
She whispered soft of feelings true
Of love that just might grow

So should I take a chance for more
And speak to one that I adore
Stroll hand in hand along a shore
 I've been struck by Cupid's bow

Darn fairies.

I've been writing for nearly 40 years. It's been a good ride. Hope you enjoy. I have one series of poems that should be read together. "A Sad Fairy Tale", "Happily", "A New Fairy Tale Begins", and "The Result of True Love". As the Staler Brothers sang "Some I wrote for money, some I wrote for fun, some I wrote and threw away, and never sang for anyone. One I wrote for Mama, and a couple still aren't through, I've lost track of all the rest but the most I wrote for you." Enjoy. more…
