There is a fairy princess,

Who is the keeper of the sun.

Whenever she feels sleepy,

She takes her great, black cloak

And drapes it around the sun.

The glittery, shimmery, gossamer

Material of her cloak is

What creates the stars.

When she wakes,

She pulls the cloak off of the sun

To bring back the daylight.

As a child,

I wanted to be that princess.

I wanted to be

The fairy to bring on the night

Because I loved the quietness

Of how the darkness felt.

The hushed tones,

The stars almost making

Twinkling sounds

Like windchimes.
