Purple skies filled with glowing lights
Illuminated the path to God.
He created the inspiration to all things
Faye and whatnot.
In the palms of His hands He
Made something grow
A beautiful fairy;
She stood not even 5 feet tall
Tiny ballerina frame,
Graceful, her wings marred her back.
Vibrant was her hello,
Delicate and sweet was her tiny voice
Uttering, "Hello Father what shall be my name?"
He was so taken by her He blessed her
With the name: "Mary Poppins",
She danced and sang
Not to mention she was sent to small children
To help them see the errors of being "naughty children"
So, God was well pleased,
She wasn't the last of her kind that was for sure
She had proven to God that her race could be caring
And that the bad could become good.
That's the end, my darling,
Go to bed sleep tight
Don't let the bedbugs bite,
Said a young mother as she kissed her daughter goodnight.
A/N: Hannah you inspired the first sentence since I read your poem before I made this challenge poem, Baby Rainbow thank you for the challenge I finished it in 40 mins and this is from the woman who can't make poetry worth squat! :) thanks :) I was challenged with using "a fairy" and "Mary Poppins"
I liked this. Just the thought that this fictional character could inspire this lovely write. I could see this little dancing fairy on her mission. A world is a better place with fairies, don't you think...
I'm glad that my poem inspired the first line of yours! :) I believe that you done awesome with your challenge that Saffie gave you. I don't think I could have ever written with the topic of Mary Poppins unless I used it as a metaphor somehow. So, great job!
You took the tale of Mary Poppins and intertwined both the mystical and spiritual qualities in this poem. You described how God created all things, including fairies and all other mystical creatures.
God created this special fairy, naming her Mary Poppins. She was energetic and kind, always dancing and singing, just an overall happy fairy that put a smile on everyone else's faces, especially children. She was created just for children, to help teach them the ways of life, how to behave and how to enjoy life to the fullest.
God was pleased with His creation, she had proved to Him that fairies could be a race that could thrive within this world. He decided that He must create more fairies, all around the world. - I like this thought that there are fairies disguised among the human race! Unique thought!
I love the ending, that this was all a tale that a Mother told to her Daughter at bedtime! Very cute!
This poem will remind a lot of people of their childhood with not only the Mary Poppins story, but take them back to that moment maybe when their own mother was reading them Mary Poppins or a similar tale at bed time. Great write!
This is a very touching and precious poem, designed with creative imagery and fantasy detailed. The mixture of mystical and spiritual come to mind. Love the intertwined outlook.
The phrase at the end is something my mother said to me often as a child and I always cringe... Bedbugs are horrible... "shivers"- She should've told me "don't look under your bed the creepy clowns gonna get ya" LOL
I'm rambling but your poem sparked a thought in me :-)
