Second Star To The Right

Deep in the woods where fairies play, there's magic to be found,


Come take a peek...but be quite still,

and utter not a sound.

Behind this gate and down the

winding path we’ll make our way,

And there we will see wonders that

see not the light of day.

On moonlit nights while we’re abed,

the forest does not rest

For midnight is the special time

that pixies like the best.

At first, there’s stillness all around,

and then there comes a light.
And if we’re quiet and careful, we may see amazing sights.


The air will come to life with thrumming sounds of tiny wings,

Then wonderment will steal our breath, and show us many things.


The creatures of the night come out to celebrate their joys,

And share delights of friendship, seldom seen by girls and boys

The Frog Prince offers tea, the

Cheshire Cat grins ear to ear.

The trill of fairy voices is a joyous

sound to hear.

All through the hours of darkest night, the magic weaves its spell,
And we’ll see secret things that we won’t ever get to tell.
For who would dare believe such things as fairies might be seen,

Though we’ll hold in our heart of hearts the wondrous place we’ve been.


We'll want to laugh, it's all such


but silence we must keep,


Until the morning light across the

treetops starts to creep.
With tired yawns, the little ones curl up their baby wings,
And seek their woodland beds, wrapped up in thoughts of splendid things.

We’ll steal away ourselves, amazed

at all that we have seen,


And in the glaring light of day,

it might seem like a dream.
But wait…hold out your hand, could that be fairy dust I see?

Hush…not a word…you know the secret will be safe with me.

Another night, we’ll once more make


way down to the gate,

As moonlight casts its

silver glow,

and evening hours grow late.

But sleep now, close your tired eyes, lay down your toused head,

Let wonder be your blanket, and the world's love be your bed...

So tickled Pixie Pink that you've found the enchanted gate that leads to the fairies. We have one too and visit there often. And your poem, I will save and cherish it. Truly magical!
Many, many delightful thank you's for being such the perfect Second Star Participant. Now I must go re-read your written magic.

OH!!! I see now what this is all about! First of all, it was a delight to discover you on my comment page today! I had two other visits from people who had thanked me for participating in this sweet event, but I was confused because I don't remember signing up for it! By pure coincidence, my post today happened to be on faeries and such, but I had no idea that this was going on! My readers who made those comments must have thought I was a participant! i love this world of make believe and YES....we need to dream more and follow our dreams with all the skills and resources we have to make this a better world. Thank you for your contribution!

Enjoy your weekend...Anita
