Fairies in My Garden at Night.

You don´t have to believe in fairies or magic....but......

Sitting alone in the quiet of the night,

Moon and stars are the only light,

I breathe in aromas of my beautiful garden.,

and try to relax once more.


Suddenly, shards of shining light,

are visible down near the gate,

I think I see lilac, pale blue and pink,

So I sit tight and I just wait.


Imagine my face as the colours get brighter

though the shades are still pastel and gentle,

I´m looking at fairies, gliding about,

my heart and my eyes nearly pop out.!



The heady aromas, the sounds of the crickets,

and FAIRIES tiptoeing in ballet like slippers.

I can hardly believe my eyes ,

What a magical, calming sight.


Satin and lace and a pert, tiny face,

turns toward me with grace,

This is no dream, this beauty serene,

A fairy´s waved magic upon me.



Was it Gold Dust that seemed to pass over me?

Fairy dust maybe, or silver. It cheers my sad heart,

lifts my spirit so high, I know I can make a new start.!

With tears in my eyes, I say ´Thank you.´


No one believes in my visit from fairies,

Yet argue they´ll not with ´New Me.´

A song in my heart , a smile on my face,

The morose, depressed soul, of her there´s no trace,

I´ll sit here again tonight with the flowers,

Waiting and hoping the fairies will come,

And if they don´t, content I´ll still be,

for last night , their job.... It was done.!

We all need a little magic in our lives, or a  little calmness at the end of a busy day.
We all need a little magic in our lives, or a little calmness at the end of a busy day.

I love anything about fairies and enjoyed this poem. There are believers and non believers. Children especially like to believe because the Tooth Fairy will come for their teeth. I like your words "Suddenly, shards of shining light"

Other than being a very beautiful poem, this brought back memories. When we were very young, my mother gave my sister a fairy and gave me a brownie (imaginary). For most of a week, we took them with us everywhere. When we were tucked in at night, they watched over us from our pillows.

We were driving to the store when my little sister started to annoy me with malicious provocations. I snatched her fairy and threw it out the window. To this day . . . she has not forgiven me, even though Mom drove back to get her fairy.

Delightful! As I sit here looking out to a cold snow covered garden you reminded me of spring and the beauty of my garden bench.

I love my garden on a bright sunny day and at night - I will think of this lovely poem when I sit on my stone garden bench at night.

My garden bench was a gift from my late husband - I wanted it because my grandparents had one. There is a romance to that bench and your poem of fairies is a symbol of the mystery that can surround an object, a tangible dream.

Thank you, Audrey,

Today my garden looks more like Jack Frost has been. Not fairies.

Take care.

I love your fairies - can I come to your garden too?! :) This poem lifts my spirit - Sometimes we all need a bit of magic to brighten us. I also love how you really engage the senses here, everything from the garden's aroma to the magnificent colors of the fairies themselves - you transport the reader right to the scene. Just lovely - voted up and awesome!

I can relate to your beautiful poem! Once at night I went outside to throw the trash and I saw a small round green light around the bushes; as soon as I got closer it hid from me...allowed me to see it once more for one or two seconds and hid again. The word fairie came to my mind.

WOW! I wonder what the little green light was???

Thank you for commenting.

Very cool poem, it opens the imagination to believe in something unseen. I just read another story about a fair in the forest, it is written by the hubber, moonfary. I guess fairies are coming back in style, lol. Really nice writing style, I enjoyed it very much, voted up, beautiful and interesting :)

Sweet. Do you know of Lorna Byrne? If not, you can find her easily on the net. She has written some great books and her dharma is tied up with fairies. Much peace.
