My bookcase, my nook…

Share with me bookcase

My Bookcase, My Nook…

It might look like a bookcase at first glance,

Donated by Grandma for this corner of the house.

But look closer… is it… a fairy by any chance?

Yes it is!  But shhhh, be quiet, quiet as a mouse.


The fairies wings glisten and sparkle in the sunshine,

No surface is left untouched by her flutter

As she leaves a trail of magic glitter that intertwines.

You will hear a grown-up, my Mummy, mumble and mutter.


Mummy calls it housework as she cleans up the ‘murk’.

She can’t see it though, this fairy now perched on a book,

But I know that it’s magic, it’s imagination at work.

You see, it’s full of adventure, it’s my corner, my nook.

    How lovely! My babies have a nook too- absolutely fantastic for reading and developing a wild, crazy imagination. I absolutely love to hear their little stories to each other.
