The Fairy Ring

Toss aside your shoes and stockings,
Cap and jacket, too,
Clothe yourself in moonbeams
Buttoned up with mountain dew.

Let the fairies take your hands
Ans spirit you away,
To a place beyond all time,
Where sprite and elf folk play.

Frisk about and twist about,
Come join the fairy ring,
Gambol to the tiny tune
That toad and cricket sing.

Dip and trip around the circle,
Sashay left then right,
Frolic with the little people,
Dance away the night.

And when daybreak comes at last,
One beam by sunny beam,
You'll find yourself alone
And wondering...
Was it just a dream?
