How lovely you move,
Sun-kissed little fairy,
With many of your kind
As the sweet honey
Dances.

You hum monotonously
As you land from flower,
To flower,
To flower,
And the leaves murmur a song
As you brush along.

When darkness sinks across the sky
Only then do you withdraw
Your fragile wings and rest your head
Until dawn breaks first light.

Your poem brightened my day in a way no other linguistic artifacts did. I especially like the part "As you land.... As you brush along". It is so musical and magical!^-^
