C.E.Cornwell, “Fairy with Roses” Feb 3, 2014.

I first drew this tiny lovely on Aug 1st 2013, then used the sketch to create this original pencil illustration. Her flirty nature was evident as she displayed her delicate rose crown.

If You See a Fairy Ring

If you see a fairy ring

In a field of grass,

Very lightly step around,

Tiptoe as you pass;

Last night fairies frolicked there,

And they’re sleeping somewhere near.

If you see a tiny fairy

Lying fast asleep,

Shut your eyes and run away,

Do not stay to peep;

And be sure you never tell,

Or you’ll break a fairy spell.
