She arrives brimming with joy,

Glowing with readiness to please

With every gesture and care

Erasing tensions with ease,

A presence as light as a feather

Floating in the breeze.

 

Smile like a sudden sun

Peeping out of a cloud,

Bright roses on her cheek,

Always full of fun

And loads of compassion,

Forever looking for ways to help

Lift your mood, don’t be sad,

It will be alright Dad, never seeks

Something only for herself,

A happy spirit like a little bird

On a twig flitting here and there joyously.

 

Eyes full of mirth

Ever since her birth,

Joining in every festivity,

Resplendent, energetically

Full of wit and humour,

Always devoted

To the concerns of another,

Wiping a tear,

Bringing smiles and laughter, full of cheer,

A hand held out to care,

for every person

Sunk in the depths of despair.

 

Chatting with her mother

Sitting intimately together

Sharing secrets like with no other

Then suddenly going away

Till she returns another day

To fill our lives with happiness

Joy and wonder

With her fairy presence,

Our precious treasure

Our unique daughter.

Not more than even a century can withstand

Your quite ordinary precious thoughts –

Even the paper browns

In less than a decade in your hand,

What more we, you, I, outlast,

Than Christ’s Christmas grows

With imperfect repetition,

Meteoring out at last in ten thousand years ?

And that baby’s dear pink cheek

Is feebler still;

For in time’s hydraulic press

Like a fossil out of context

It remains

Chewed out to the bone;

So go fairy ego

Butterfly away

Into the impermanent sun.
