Christmas in the Woods

"Lord!" I prayed as I walked along the dark street, cold, tired and weary, with nothing to eat. The dark cold air surrounds me, and I stop to see soft pastel lights coming from the forest trees. The trees glistened with rainbow lights, and what I saw was an amazing sight. For there in the moonlight, with stars aglow, there was a table set, and, don't you know, in the midst of all I see and hear was a fairy with a soft voice saying, "Come near!" She touched my feet, and, don't you know, I was dressed like a princess from head to toe. The stars lit up the dew that lay on the trees, and all the food I liked was there for me. So I ate my fill, then thought, "Why me?" My lord's answer was, "My child, I love thee!" That night in the snow my body was found, but the people didn't know I had a harp and crown. For even though I'm only six or seven, my food now I eat in Heaven.
