There were fairies and gnomes


‘Wake up girly, it's time to get up.’ What …? Rose thinks,

Not a moment ago I was at the fairies party, and right now

I am at home, in my bed. How did I get here?

Then Mama calls again. ‘Come! otherwise you’ll be late for school.’

But school is far away right now? There still music in her head?


‘Mom, I was in the woods at a party, together with Anemone

and I drank berry juice, and ate snacks, and a gnome orchestra

played high and low while I danced with the fairies.’ ‘I would like

very much to hear all about it my dear, but only this afternoon,

when you’re home from school, so your better hurry up and go.’
