The Fairy Dance

The Fairy Dance

I staggered home late one eve,
The moon and stars shone bright
When on night’s breath came floating,
Joyous music soft and light

Sweet magnet tune drew me on,
Weaving an enchanting spell
I felt not tearing bramble hands
As crescendos rose and fell

Man’s mind could scarce comprehend,
What I’d happened on by chance
I viewed with awe and childlike wonder
The fairy’s Harvest Dance

The magic music throbbed sweet tempo,
Dancing in firelight fairies flew
A floating square dance, Do-Si-Do,
They bobbed, bowed then formed anew,

The little fairy band played on
Reed flutes and nut shell drums
They were standing on a bandbox,
Of woven autumn mums

Seated round the fire on pebbles,
Sat little gown clad fairy maids
Wooed and courted by tiny fey men,
To ‘come and dance’ they bade

Wide eyed I gaped at banquet tables,
Spread with linen pressed and fine
Platters heavy with dewdrop pudding,
Star shine cake and moonbeam wine

On tiny carved ivory thrones,
Draped in gossamer folds
Reigned the king and queen of Fairies,
Clasping scepters made of gold

One lovely little fire haired lady
Flowers twining in her hair
Neath a mushroom’s spreading cap
Forlorn was hiding there

What could cause this small maid’s weeping
Lashes wet with pained emotion
Her little tear stained gaze did follow
A winged prince with such devotion

The little prince broke off his dancing
Took flight up to the band
A haunting tune sprung from the bandbox
Magic piping learned from Pan

On loves swift wing the prince he flew
Straight for the toadstool cap
Bowed and sat down on an acorn
Took the maid onto his lap

Smiling sweetly, the little lovely
Wiped her eyes upon her sleeve
Shamed to witness private moments
I turned to take my leave

With ragged breath held tight I crept
From the eerie misty vale
Oh, what a wondrous tale I’ll have
When next I hoisted ale!

Savanah I have just been revisiting all my favorite poems I have of yours and a couple of years down the line they are still as enchanting as ever - the sign of excellent poetry methinks

"Up the airy mountain ... down the rushy glen. We daren't go a-hunting ... for fear of little men.
Good folk, wee folk ... trouping all together. Green jacket, Red cap ... and White owl's feather" This is the opening to "The Fairies" by William Allingham which is a favorite of mine and one I read often to my daughter which I am sure helped spawn her love of poetry. You have captured the fairy world in wondrous detail and this is a delight to read and read again.

This is brilliant work....I know it is a few months old of a poem, but I was curious to read it because fairies have tweaked my interest...the other night I had a dream of angels and fairies...let me tell you, it was a busy dream lol...I have yet been able to put it into words...angels I am familiar with but know little of fairy did an outstanding job at painting me a vivid picture...and congrats on the ribbon....

Another deserving ribbon winner. I'm interested in fairy stories myself (by which I mean real stories about real people who claim to have seen fairies, although I like fairy stories too) so I really enjoyed this poem, with your wonderful descriptions of the festivities. I liked the way you injected a little romantic adventure into it too. Very good.
