Elisabeth is my second cousin (i think that’s how it works). Her mother sent me a shot of her taken in their back garden- Elisabeth in her gorgeous red ruffle skirt in Mum’s favourite chair! I can’t take credit for the set up – only the post work :) I found the poem in the background on a website – poetry from children – In english it says

I MADE a ring of leaves
On the autumn grass:
I was a fairy queen all day.
Inside the ring, the wind wore sandals
Not to make a noise of going.
The caterpillars, like little snow men,
Had wound themselves in their winter coats.
The hands of the trees were bare
And their fingers fluttered.
I was a queen of yellow leaves and brown,
And the redness of my fairy ring
Kept me warm.
For the wind blew near,
Though he made no noise of going,
And I hadn’t a close-made wrap
Like the caterpillars.
Even a queen of fairies can be cold
When summer has forgotten and gone!
Keep me warm, red leaves;
Don’t let the frost tiptoe into my ring
On the magic grass!
