A Poem for Imbolc, Brides Day or Groundhog Day:)

Grace from http://goldpoppy.blogspot.com/ Graces Poppies has asked for people to do a silent poem reading to celebrate the day, I loved the idea so herewith a poem my nan used to tell us. Don't know if it was hers or from elsewhere but no matter
Once I found a fairy in my cup of tea
she was nearly drownded(yes thats how its spelt GG)
as wet, as wet can be.
I took her out and dried her,
I asked her if she'd stay
"Oh no, oh no" she answered
and off she flew away

In memory of nanny and a celebration of the day. For me Imbolc or Brides Day. From Ewes milk, first lambs and snowdrops are here. Can Spring be far away?
Blessed be and may Brides blessing be upon you all.

Return of the light. It can't come too quickly for me. I saw crocuses today and that always cheers me up.

I used to celebrate the festivals but it's been a while since I made the time.

i know this poem but slightly different

Once I saw a fairy in my cup of tea
she was nearly drownded
as wet, as wet can be.
I picked her out and dried her,
I asked her if she'd stay
"Oh no" she said "i mustn't"
and off she flew away
