HOUSEFUL OF FAERIES

I opened up the cupboard and what did I see
I saw a tiny Faerie
In a cup and saucer meant for tea
Sat that little tiny Faerie
Oh what's your name and who could you be
That little sprite she said to me
"My name is Emily and I am the keeper of the tinctures and the teas."

Then I opened up the freezer and what did I see
I saw another little tiny Faerie
He was wearing a scarf, a hat and gloves
And he was sending out wishes of the warmest love
Oh what's your name and who could you be
That little pixie said to me
"My name is Jeremy
Jeremy Faerie of the deep deep freeze."

Into the backyard moonlight I couldn't help but stare
The loveliest of Faeries was dancing there
She whirled and she twirled and she glided through the air
So full of love which her dancing helped to share
Oh what's your name and who could you be
"Athena of the dance is what they call me.
When I lift my wings my feet don't touch he ground
And it makes all the children sing the sweetest sounds."

Later on that evening as I crept into bed
I lifted up the pillow upon which I lay my head
There slept a beauty so little and so small
A sleeping Faerie and the tiniest of all
Oh what's your name and who could you be
In a tired voice that Faerie said to me
"My name is Dulcea of the Dreams
I bring in night time's power and I bring in moon beams."

I've a houseful of Faeries and a heartful of love
Evenings filled with dreams from celestials above
Faeries love to sing to dance and to share
And when you hear them ringing bells it shows just how much they care
Oh, what's my name and who could I be
I am Echoes of Light Faerie of the Silver Stream
Warm and tender blessings go from me to you
Your listening to my song fills me up with gratitude
