A Faerie Wish

Snow, snow, please go away,
I'm so tired of long, grey, melancholy days.

Don't you know,
didn't you get the memo?

I'm a sunshine and beach kinda girl.

A vacation would be divine,
I long for sand between my toes as I recline.

No crying babies or ringing phones,
no dirty dishes or soiled clothes.

No meals to plan or floors to sweep,
just lounging in the sun,
soaking up the heat until I fall asleep.

Floppy sunhats and flowing dresses the uniform of the day,
skipping rocks and hunting seashells all day.

Or, failing all that,
a good beating will always work.

This is my faerie wish for the day.

  1. Welcome to California.... leave the snow, the phone, and the kids at home and come to the west coast for sun and fun.

    1. I have always lived on the shore of some body of water, unfortunately, the one I currently live on is frozen :(

  3. No snow down here. It is a slightly cool but pleasant day. I am sitting on the porch enjoying a hot cup of coffee while I get a little sunshine on my blinding white legs

  4. I hope you get your wish! But just to be sure, maybe you should dress up like tinkerbell and have your hubby smack your bottom (there's a slight chance you have magical pixie dust in you, I'm sure!) while you make your wish ;-)

    1. So that's why my wishes haven't been coming true, I've been doing it wrong. I'll need to acquire a Tinkerbelle costume, but I've always wanted a reason to get a pair of wings anyway, teeheehee :)

  6. Great poem Faerie...wishing it comes true asap! It snowed yesterday, was cold and sunny today and we're due for storms the next 3 days so no warm and sunny here for you. :(

    Blessings...

    1. At this point, any day where we get UP to freezing...is a good day.

  7. Wonderful poem Faerie, I'm mourning the end of summer and start of autumn. Fortunately we don't get snow during winter in our part of NZ.

    Hugs,

    1. Summer and autumn are my two favorite seasons. I have a ways to go to get to either one, we can expect snow until at least mid April during a good winter. This hasn't been a good winter.

    1. Thanks, not so far, but I'm working on that Tinkerbelle costume. I think River Wild may have hit upon my mistake when making wishes, heeheeheee :)
