Fairy Shoes On Display

Fairy footwear on display
Not for sale, not today
Nor any other dainty day
Offered in an airy breeze
On limpid stamen shoe-trees
Free to shoeless wee folk, barefooted fairies
Fly, they will, with feet unclad
Toes will tingle just a tad
When shoes to feet they will add
Story-book shoes of powdery soles
Tagless footbeds and soft insoles
Flexible fit every fairy extols
Slippers coated with golden fairy dust,
Hard to say which are the coolest
Except perhaps those adorned with wanderlust
I’m just saying
Time for playing
And having Fun!
