The Peppermint Fairy

Peppermint_Fairy

Pale of face
Delicately dressed
Red & white stripes
Hold body encased

Blue eyes
Upon porcelain face
Add magic
To her fragile grace

Transparent wings
Angelic flair
Tiny sparkles
Don midnight hair

Red ribbon stripes
Bound around her waist
Evoke thoughts
Of peppermint taste

A special ornament
She’ll always be
Smiling from atop
The Christmas tree

Jim & I joined the Christmas Ornament Club in 1984. The Peppermint Fairy was the first ornament received with many, many more to follow for several years. The collection will one day be divided among the four children, except for The Peppermint Fairy, which was given to Nicole after the birth of our first granddaughter.
