Last night I saw a faerie
 

Where moonlight shimmers through the trees,

Sweet water cascades, mountain streams,

Say what you like, but I think I'm right,

Last night I saw a faerie.

 

The grass so soft I laid me down,

To watch the stars no clouds around,

I might be wrong, but I'll sing my song,

Last night I saw a faerie.

 

Where soft winds bend the daffodils,

Where nightjars sing of love fulfilled,

My words a joke? I regret I spoke,

Last night I saw a faerie.

 

Where scented flowers intoxicate,

And gentle creatures congregate,

You think me mad, well perhaps a tad,

Last night I saw a faerie.

 

Where trees are scarce and grass begins,

I came upon a faerie ring,

Laugh if you will, I care not a trill,

Last night I saw a faerie.

 

On filmy wings with feather step,

She came and sat down on my lap,

What happened next? You'll hardly guess,

Last night I kissed a faerie.
