The Candle-Lighters

When shadows creep at eventide

And little ones are safe inside,

Bright stars a-twinkling way up high

Are Fairies’ candles in the sky.

When shadows creep at eventide

The Fairies take their evening ride;

On flitting fireflies wafted high

They light their candles in the sky.

    1. I like the bugs too – maybe they are crickets? I like 2 dimensional bugs – I am less fond of 3 D bugs.

      Hope all is well with you and your goats!

        1. I get sad when I am near any animal that dies. Death is sad and brings us right up against it. There is no small death. Sorry about the little bird.

  1. Oh, Elephant, this one is truly outstanding, picture and words? Could I reblog it on my site? I’m sure my fairy tale friends would really like it!

  2. Reblogged this on Friendly Fairy Tales and commented:
    Elephant’s Picture Book is saving many gorgeous illustrations, and making them available to us on-line! Here is a friendly fairy tale one, but to find many others, visit her site. I hope you enjoy it. Have a great weekend! Brenda

      1. That is so true…..there are certain magical elements in fairy tales that we tune into as children, and those of us that are lucky hold onto or rekindle that ability to tune in and resonate with it!
        It’s great!
