Report From Fablehaven

Sally Gossamer Wingstep had returned from far away
Going only so nearly far as to have something fun to say
More than all about elephants, chocolate, or crashing waves
Or stadiums full of fans of helmeted indian braves
Sally had come across a land wilder than that of the Raven
She had flitter-fluttered into a place simply called Fablehaven
Free running chickens ruled the long slow sloping backyard
Where three odd girls played and acted really, really hard
Lilly was the oldest one directing her siblings at play
Stamping her feet quite often since rarely getting her way
Second came Zadie Rose gamely over enthusing her role
Acting with all of her might as if acting were her life’s true goal
Lastly came Little Terra Belle wondering why all this fuss
Wasn’t it time for singing about wheels going ’round the bus
Sally Gossamer Wingstep related all this she’d seen and heard
But the other fairies wouldn’t believe her, no, not a single word
So poor Sally G. sloughed off to get her last cold root beer
Vowing to return to Fablehaven same time in the new year
But she maintained her composure, without nary a hoot or a cuss
But she would visit those kids again and see about that freewheelin’ bus
So if you notice a flitter-flutter out of the corner of your eye
No need to be alarmed, it’s just Sally G. Wingstep winging on by

About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
