Casting its faded light,

the fog bathed…

the world in white,

obscuring details

of the lonely night.

Now upon morn,

it still hung like a cloak,

a calm blanket,

underneath were fairy folk.

Peeking out from underground,

making their presence known,

tis time for Christmas

to cast a spell …

bringing happiness to town!

It started with twinkling lights,

then on to ribbons,

hanging from the heights,

strung on trees amidst the leaves,

birds twittering,

stringing garlands,

toys and gifts,

leaving stockings full

for all the kids.

Upon waking, the village now merry

awed at being blessed

by fairies…

to have a little peace,

all playing with toys,

to see the light,

families singing,

sharing the joy!
