#PoeticThursday . . . When mother takes the Fairy Book




When mother takes the Fairy Book
And we curl up to hear,
‘Tis “All aboard for Fairyland!”
Which seems to be so near.
For soon we reach the pleasant place
Of Once Upon a Time,
Where birdies sing the hour o’ day,
And flowers talk in rhyme;
Where Bobby is a velvet Prince,
And where I am a Queen;
Where one can talk with animals,
And walk about unseen;
Where Little People live in nuts,
And ride on butterflies,
And wonders kindly come to pass
Before your very eyes…
It is the nicest time of day,
Though Bedtime is so near,
When Mother takes the Fairy Book
And we curl up to hear.
