FINDING FAERIES

(possible tune: traditional Jewish…Where Will the Wedding–Wedding Will Be?)

Finding summer faeries..

Where are they?

Under the flowers

To help them sway!

Where are the faeries

When turned loose…

Whom do you think

Will tickle the goose?

How will the faeries

Stay alive…

In the hearts of children

They will thrive!

Where will the faeries

At end of summer go…

Replaced by faeries

That like the snow!!!!

–Jonathan Caswell

SUDDENLY…HAIKU

SUDDENLY…HAIKU

Unused salty brine,

Unexpected snow and rain…

Uphill traffic jams.

Winter faeries dance,

Overnight blizzards dump snow…

Plowmen cross themselves.

Out of mist a girl,

Brightening eyes of a man…

Warm thought–cold shoulder!

Near birds twittering,

Hungry hawks circling slowly…

Hiding resources.

–Jonathan Caswell

SNOW QUEEN…SNOW FAERIE

SNOW QUEEN…SNOW FAERIE

 

Snow Queen,  where have you gone?

Your train spreads across the whole lawn…

It’s fluttery white,

Shining at night

As though lit up by a faun.

Snow Faerie, where did you go,

Last night you were dancing as snow….

Fine flakes were wind-whipped

Daintily you tripped,

Upon the earth, lending your glow!

Oh what do these spectres mean,

Dancing among the evergreen…

Folklore attains depth

Rather than face death,

Among the hearts from which they’re seen!
