    Selected Poem
A night surprise
I arose late that night
in the pale autumn moonlight
to fetch a glass of milk I hoped
to send me back to sleep.

I glanced outside and to my fright
in the pale autumn moonlight
there were tiny fairies leaping gamboling
dancing on my lawn

I witnessed nights of merrymaking
rest forgotten, sleep forsaken
fey creatures do you see me
with my face pressed to the glass.

Perhaps I should make a token
some small gift to the tiny folk, in
honor of the privilege to have them
dancing on my lawn.

In the evenings fading light
with trembling hands and great delight
a tray of oatmeal raisin cookies I
left for my nocturnal guests.

In the morn I had to see
if my fairy friends had found my treat.
Not a single cookie crumb remained
But the fairies picked every last raisin out
Who knew

- Jeff Ruemmele


Author's Footnote: I first thought this story might be the basis for the next rock opera, like Tommy, but it probably won't.
