In the woods of my backyard,
I swear I saw a fairy.
It flitted around on tiny wings,
It’s movements light and airy.
And once when we were in the creek,
I thought I saw a mermaid.
Her hair flowed smoothly down her back
Like a wavy wet cascade.
One time when I was climbing trees,
A shadow passed over my face.
As I looked up through the leaves above,
A dragon was gliding with grace.
And lastly looking to the sky,
The most beautiful I have seen,
She weaved her way through cotton clouds,
The very true sky queen.
