The Xmas Fairy

By 20th December 2012December 9th, 2019No Comments

I sometimes sit and wonder
Why folks seldom think of me
Cos I’m just a Xmas Fairy
To stand atop the Xmas tree
I’m looking all around me
At the different array of lights
Hanging by the Xmas cards
But they’re turned off at nights
So I just stand here daily
With baubles all around
Present piled beneath me
And the Xmas Carols sound
The Children all adore me
Especially the little Girls
They like my fashionable Fairy Dress
My pretty face and hair with curls
I sometimes think of why I stand
Precariously propped up high
Maybe away from the owners dog
That occasionally walks by
But nobody ever speaks to me
Not even Santa on Xmas Eve
He just walks in with bulging sack
Which under the tree He’ll leave
Then Xmas Day I’ll stand and watch
As the presents are opened wide
By excited Children & parents
To see just what’s inside
And later on the Family meal
Turkey and Tinsel so they say
Accompanied of course by Xmas Pudding’
And Mince pies on this Special Day
I nearly forgot the glasses of wine
Supplied by the genial Host
And during the meal the glasses are raised
And “ A Happy Xmas Everyone” is the toast
With all the activity going on
Nobody seems to think of me
For I’m just a lonely little Xmas Fairy
Stuck on top of the Xmas Tree
