fae ballet

have you seen the fae ballet?

it promises to delight

I hear they dance most evenings

with watercolored sprites

be sure to get there early 

and please do save a seat

you get the tickets,

I’ll bring the treats!


pixies playing clarinet

set the tone just right

faerie dancers pirouette

as day turns into night

casting shadow silhouettes

in the softly fading light
