CHRISTMAS FAERIES

 

Although well-intentioned,

Faeries are seldom mentioned…

In Christmas lore,

Were they, before,

Christians started intervention?

A winter solstice concluded,

Were they consulted by the Druids?

To fertilize frozen

Land and folks chosen

To produce bumper crops when denuded?

The chance to be erotic is there

Inside, away from cold air…

But most today

Will get away

With a colored drawing fair.

It must have been a fright

To lose more and more sunlight…

With excited queries

Unto the faeries,

“Would this year turn out all right?”
