Of ruby, sapphire, beryl and every gem known to man are you,
Sprinkled in nature´s morning tears, of raindrops, frost and dew,
Glinting, silky patterned and lacily delicate, of soft downy gleam,
Darting, flitting in and out of mossy brook and laughing silly stream.
Garbed in gowns of turquoise, scarlet, green and old burnished gold,
Skimming, dipping, sipping and diving, so pretty and yet so very bold,
Kissing velvet lilly-pads, shy petals and playing amidst the river beds,
Flying rainbow gems in sunny yellows, cyan blues and cherry-berry reds.
Pretty fairies of the forest glens, you of delicate gossamer dainty wings,
Gentle demeanor, whispering flight and without malicious hurtful stings,
To you pretty ones, of hushed waltzing dancing’s and swift silver fleetings,
Hail to you, for making my dawns richer in our colourful daily meetings
