It's me...


"There are fairies at the bottom of our garden!
It's not so very, very far away;
You pass the gardner's shed and you just
keep straight ahead I do so hope they've really come to stay.
There's a little wood, with moss in it and beetles,
And a little stream that quietly runs through;
You wouldn't think they'd dare to come merrymaking there, Well, they do.

There are fairies at the bottom of our garden!
They often have a dance on summer nights;
The butterflies and bees make a lovely little breeze,
And the rabbits stand about and hold the lights.
Did you know that they could sit upon the moonbeams
And pick a little star to make a fan,
And dance away up there in the middle of the air? Well, they can.

There are fairies at the bottom of our garden!
You cannot think how beautiful they are;
They all stand up and sing when the Fairy Queen
and King Come gently floating down upon their car.
The King is very proud and very handsome;
The Queen--now you can quess who that could be
(She's a little girl all day, but at night she steals away)? Well -- it's Me!"

What a delightful post.

Nog van harte gefeliciteerd. Dat is echt toevallig. Ik vondt het al toevallig dat Paulo coelho de bekende schrijver van de alchemist op de zelfde dag jarig was. Ik heb een link naar zijn Blog en hij heeft het opgemerkt want hij kwam naar mijn Blog en feliciteerde mij.
Leuk he.
Ik heb het ook op zondag gevierd
We zijn lekker uit wezen eten. Hier vieren ze geen verjaardagen voor volwassenen alleen degene met een 0 erachter
Ik ben gestopt met bloggen maar als ik tijd heb kom ik je wel af en toe bezoeken Groetjes
