Song of the Fairy poetry From a friend that i wanted to share. Good prose


The moonlight fades from flower and tree, And the stars dim one by one;
The tale is told, the song is sung, And the Fairy feast is done. The 
night-wind rocks the sleeping flowers, And sings to them, soft and low. 
The early birds erelong will wake: 'T is time for the Elves to go. 

O'er the sleeping earth we silently pass, Unseen by mortal eye, And send
sweet dreams, as we lightly float Through the quiet moonlit sky;-- For 
the stars' soft eyes alone may see, And the flowers alone may know, The 
feasts we hold, the tales we tell: So 't is time for the Elves to go. 

From bird, and blossom, and bee, We learn the lessons they teach; And
seek, by kindly deeds, to win A loving friend in each. And though 
unseen on earth we dwell, Sweet voices whisper low, And gentle hearts 
most joyously greet The Elves where'er they go. 

When next me meet in the Fairy dell, May the silver moon's soft light
Shine then on faces gay as now, And Elfin hearts as light. Now spread 
each wing, for the eastern sky With sunlight soon will glow. The 
morning star shall light us home: Farewell! for the Elves must go. 

As the music ceased, with a soft, rustling sound the Elves spread their
shining wings, and flew silently over the sleeping earth; the flowers 
closed their bright eyes, the little winds were still, for the feast 
was over, and the Fairy lessons ended.
