Children's Story: The Garden Fairy by Terry Lerdall-Fitterer
 
I found her standing in the woods,
As fresh as April showers,
A lovely pastel maiden fair,
Ensconced among the flowers.
I asked her where she made her home,
And why her lovely sheen,
"I dwell among the frogs," she said,
"and that is why I'm green."
 
Her fingers touched the rainbow shade,
That balanced on a post,
She shyly turned it all about,
Like some delighted ghost.
She stood so rapt in thought that I,
Did question then, my eyes,
I dropped my rake to stare at her-
Her gaze was on the skies.
 
I held my breath-- I dared not touch,
Such beauty cannot be-
When suddenly she disappeared;
I scanned the nearest tree.
And saw her not—she'd floated off,
To some enchanted land,
Where frogs and ladies live and dance,
To some unearthly band.
 
Her wraith-like form had left my life,
I felt depressed and lone,
My heart had reached without success
For what I'd never own.
I can't begin to tell you,
how that dream affected me,
I actually believed that dream,
and still wish it were true.
 
I will not soon forget that night,
I spied those greenish togs,
And wish that I had gone with her,
To dance among the frogs.
