Fairies in my mind


In my garden now
Where hard toil reaps my reward
There’s competition

In the breezy springtime
Be so careful how you go
Strangers are afoot

You will discover
So many hairy monsters
Have their work to do

Moths and Butterflies
Have laid their eggs in love
Eat my vegetables

Should I begrudge them?
They’re so beautiful when grown
Fairies in my mind

  1. Does your mind work in, um, strange ways? You know: hairy monsters as fairies? ;)

  2. One tends to forgive them for what they are going to be! That is being noble! Great lines old egg!

  9. I am absolutely enthralled by the caterpillar to moth/butterfly transformation. It's absolutely magical. But I still squash them if they are on my vegetable.
