WATER FAERIES AREN’T MERMAIDS

WATER FAERIES AREN’T MERMAIDS…

All faeries have colors and wings,

They are such delicate things…

But let a male draw

And soon a flaw

Shows faeries without clothing!

Mermaids and faeries  both

Need not have gender growth…

Stay light and fair

You faeries in air,

Stay away from the man whose an oaf!

–Jonathan Caswell

WATER FAERIES IN DISGUISE

WATER FAERIES IN DISGUISE

Water Faeries wait in lower grassy fields,

Clothed as low mist in eventide…

Condensation rising cooler nights yield

Fuzzy cloaks where faeries would abide.

In amongst the grasses where little folk stay

Faeries hunt blessings neighborly…

Cooler autumn evenings replace warmer days,

We see these special folk but rarely!

Many don’t believe in sprite, faerie or faun,

Seems that science has put them away…

But those believers with a child-like heart

If they are careful–may see them come out to play.

WATER FAERIES WINTER UNDER

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.

MORNING VESPERS

MORNING VESPERS

Water vapors arise in air,

Cooler temperatures compare…

Waters warmer

Than the former,

Faeries have light silver hair!

WHERE ARE THE FAERIES?

WHERE ARE THE FAERIES?

 

He’d love to see a faerie,

Cute and spiritedly merry…

But he sleeps in too late

To participate

In watching the river mist tarry.

By the time he is awake,

The marshes have begun to bake…

All faeries are gone,

Evaporated along

With the splash of a motorboat’s wake.
