Throwback Friday, The Faeries of Fry’s Lane, by Ivor Steven

A poem I wrote in May 2020 and now is published in my book “Perceptions”, page 3, prompted by Derrick Knight’s Photo, ‘Hedgerow faeries along Fry’s Lane’ >> https://derrickjknight.com/2020/05/21/hedgerow-fairies/





The Faeries of Fry’s Lane




Walking down Fry’s Lane

Sheltering from the misty rain

I did spy among the hedgerow berries

A Frolic of mystical faeries

Like iridescent glowing canaries

A fluttering of night-time luminaries


Trying not to disturb their magical home

I quietly asked them, “Areyouallalone”

The faeries laughed and danced

They replied, “Your visionisby perchance

and your dreams may turn to stone

if you wish for a golden throne”


Suddenly the glittering sands of time

Illuminating the faeries wings of rhyme

Begun vanishing from their falling stars

And the faeries quickly flew back to their green Avatar
