Elusive Fairy

 
Searching for the elusive fairy
I found such pure delights
In the sunshine singing there
Where the dawning of Spring
Flowers blooming
Would fit a fairy true
Skirts twirling and embellishment for the hair
Tucked under moss and mushrooms
Are they hiding, but where
Yes, the elusive fairy is dancing here

Photos take in the sunshine of a recent winter day in the Portland Japanese Gardens.

It looks so pretty and spring-like! We're expecting more snow tomorrow, but hopefully it won't last long. Happy Valentine's Day to you and Jim! x

I love your poem Marilyn, and I'm sure there are fairies everywhere! That's what I believe!

The dawning of Spring is always thrilling! Fondest love to you today, Marilyn.

What IS it about chasing those fairies? You never find them, but you find so much more! These are lovely and I have to say I'm a tad envious of your early spring!

Oh my! I just hope the fairies had as good a time as you obviously did!

This made me smile and smile... particularly since it is freezing and windy here just now.
Fairy magic is a beautiful thing.
