Teal Feathered Fairy

Catch,
Catch me if you can
I am the teal feathered fairy
Who flies whimsically among
The yellow colored birch

Catch,
Catch me if you can
I am the teal feathered fairy
Hiding in the sagebrush

When you come to
Call out my name
Remember that hiding from mortals
Is my expertise game

Leaps and bounds
Aerials and flips
Alfresco style
Didn't you know
I am the one who sees you below

One, two, three
You can't see me
Four, five, six
I cartwheel through the sticks
Seven, eight, nine
These feathers they are mine
Ten, eleven, twelve
Fairy land is where I delve

So off I go to leave you afoot
Searching in vain for fairies again
And again
And again
