Belle & Rita

Snail Races
In a far away time in the Dingly Dell,
Lived a magical fairy by the name of Belle.
With sparkling eyes and hair all afire,
winning a race was her fervent desire!
Her favourite mount was a snail named Rita,
the fastest in fairyland, no snail could beat her!
When race day came round, wee Belle was ready,
saddled up nicely, snail polished and steady!

The starter yelled GO! They set off for the race,
and Rita soon slithered at her fastest snail’s pace!
The time flew by, it seemed like hours,
As they slimed over rocks and slid past flowers.

Belle gurgled and laughed the whole day long,
And the Dingley Dell rang out with bird song!
The flowers in joy, gave their pollen and scent
as the bees bumbled throughout this happy event!

At the end of the day the fairies all cheered
as Belle and Rita, the home stretch they neared!
They passed the tall Iris beside the flat stone
and Belle giggled out loud as they snailed towards home!
Just another two inches, Blue Ribbon in sight,
Belle urged her mount Rita to show all her might....
They crossed it, they won it, the fairies went crazy,
they accepted the prize standing on a white daisy!

Belle bowed to the crowd and the cheering went up,
They won the Blue Ribbon and a dewed butter cup!
As dusk settles down the party will start
And Rita will munch on a whole lettuce heart!

This is a fairy doll pattern by Sherry Goshon that I actually made in 2008.  Just found a doll challenge by her and didn't read it properly. Composed the poem, then read it was for 2007!  So I'm a wee bit out of date!  Not to worry, it was a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon!
