The Results of True Love



Three little fairy girls
Cute as can be
The triplets Fitzpower
Joy and laughter times three

With the scent of wildflowers
Infused in their hair
And a love of the earth
For things growing they care

Melody is a redhead
And smart as a whip
With eyes like the violets
And a song on her lips

With tresses like midnight
and cobalt blue eyes
Harmony's like an angel
When she smiles Dad just sighs

If you're looking for mischief
In a blonde, green-eyed sprite
Then Rhapsody is the answer
Though she mostly does right

Three bits of magic
Half fairy, half gnome
Six sparkling eyes
To bring warmth to the home

Three rays of sunshine
Bringing laughter and cheer
Three little devils
When bedtime is near

All day in the garden
They run, laugh, and giggle
Then curl up in the porch swing
With barely a wiggle

As Momma sings softly
At the end of the day
Three girls drift to dreamland
All done with their play

Bartholomew and Amethyst
and three blessings retire
To sweet dreams of love
By a warm crackling fire

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…
