Fairy Time
D. Bowden

Evening time in the summer, when leafy things silhouette their purple-black against a velveteen starry sky, the fairies come out to play. One by one, their lanterns appear in the darkness. Little yellow lights flicker here and there in the garden as the tiny fairies dance and flit about playing their warm-weather games that no human may take part in. If you listen close, you might hear one laughing, or you may hear a group of fairies singing magical song in celebration of summertime.
