WATER FAERIES WINTER UNDER
Where do water faeries go,
When weather turns cold with snow…
They find it nice
Underneath the ice,
Until springs thaw returns water flow.
I’m sure everybody has seen
Open water in winter that steams…
Water faeries will dance
In sudden romance,
While sunlight keeps the opening ice-clean.
All that one could wish,
Is to sleep with the turtles and fish…
Til the springtime warms
The heart of swarms
Of faeries and flies feverish.
