Fairies in Winter

By Phyllis Beebe

Tiny fairies in the garden
Dancing lightly on the snow,
Never leaving any footprints,
None, at least, that seem to show.

They wear boots of soft, grey mouse skin
Anoraks of thistledown
Caps and mittens knit by spiders,
As they circle round and round.

Winter doesn't faze a fairy
When it wants to play and dance.
Garbed thus in its warm attire,
Jack Frost doesn't have a chance!
