just before the sun goes down

the hidden folk start to play

they dance around like flashing stars

in celebration of the end of day

they dance and sing in glee with joy

in anticipation for what comes their way

they love the time of the fading light

and with gratitude they hide away

silence calls just one more time

then the stellar folk fly away

  2. Reminds me of what was at the bottom of the garden in my childhood home in Plymouth. I wonder if the houses I made them are still there?!!
