Becoming a Faerie

I found this beautiful dress
in a old chest
in a old attic
in a old house
on a beautiful dress in April

It was lilac
it felt good to touch
light on the fingers
and it looked on me too
fit me perfectly

I put it on
And on the stroke of midnight
As the bells tolled
I became a faerie

I remember hearing the bells
then seeing a whirl of glitter
then I transformed
into something so beautiful
so tiny and precious

I was much smaller
but more beautiful and powerful

I could become invisible
and I had wings!
beautiful
sparkly
W I N G S

I stood on the windowsill
and flied

I flew to the meadows and valleys
the air smelled so fresh
and the flowers so crisp

I flew up into the heavens
sat on a cloud
and watched the world go by

I stared into the stars
closer than I've been before

I basked in the full moon

Then as the sun began to rise
my powers began to rise
and I flew back down
down to Earth
down to
H O M E

I don't think your idea is stupid at all. After reading several faerie books, I always dream of having wings of my own. You have an incredible imagination and a lot of talent. Please read,rate,and comment on my poems! Thanks!

I don't think it's stupid, in fact I know exactly what you mean. I found a dress once and it was amazing... it made me feel amazing. I love this poem, do you think maybe sometime you could check out some of mine?

My goodness, I can't imagine that there is anything of worth that sounds less stupid. I do believe that this is my favorite of your work; the story, the language, I'm simply in love with it. It's wonderful to just "let your imagination go," isn't it? That's how you're able to fly! This is such a great poem! :)

This is so, precious, just like a tiny lilac fairy, not unlinke the fairy-you you describe in this poem. I'm very glad that you can let your imagination run wild :)
