I Want to be a Fairy

Purple Fairy by Brenda Davis Harsham

Painting by Brenda Davis Harsham

A lovely blogger named Line at Paths of the Spirit wrote this beautiful poem in honor of my daughter’s fifth birthday, and gave it to her as a gift. How sweet is that? I painted a tiny fairy for it and put them together here for all fairy tale lovers who also want to be fairies:

I want to be a fairy
Beautiful and wee
I want to fly with fairy wings
And live inside a tree

I want to be a fairy
Beautiful and wee
I want to play with fairy things
And sleep inside a leaf

I want to be a fairy
Beautiful and wee
I want to eat the fairies’ cakes
And drink the fairies’ tea

I want to be a fairy
Beautiful and wee
I want to have some fairy friends
Who’ll come and play with me

I want to be a fairy
Beautiful and wee
But I am just a little girl
With lots of fairy dreams

Thank you, Line, you are an angel!  Warmly, Brenda

  1. Here is my wish to your daughter, a few lines from me.
    Being a fairy is so sweet
    Would you accept me as one
    I accept all conditions to be a fairy
    If it was so beautiful to be one
    I would have wished not to grow older
    The happiness that you derive
    Splendidly amazing
    Please welcome me into your fold
    I make you sleep well be well
    Do not make me jealous as it is not in my being
    Oh ! My Fairy!!!
    Fondest Regards to YOU

  2. Happy belated fifth birthday, so sorry I missed your special occasion. I would have loved seeing you all decked out as a very pink fairy! Smiles and hugs, from your distant aunt or cousin, your mom’s sister, in our imagination, Robin


    • My daughter was a very pink fairy. 🙂 Alas, she is much prettier than my skill at painting could manage. My daughter loved the poem and took it for granted that someone would write her a cool poem, since I am always doing that for her. I know how special it is, though, and I appreciate Line very much.


  3. How sweet! A wonderful birthday gift to your daughter. I love Line’s poems, and it seems she just put this 1 together with such ease. Amazing how we all inspire each other here in blogland. I imagine your daughter is very pleased at the birthday that just keeps giving!


  4. It’s nice, and it’s great you’re pursuing something which you think is important for your fairy tales and the book. Definitely, good start.


  5. Oh, Brenda! The fairy you painted is so beautiful!! I love it!! You should illustrate more, you are really talented!! 🙂 She reminds me of you 🙂 Hihi, just as sweet!


  6. I love poetry and i love Line.. she is awesome, so are you.. but your kid.. she has to be awesome-r I know that’s not a word but I just like to say like that..
