Secret Hiding Place
By Alyssa McGill
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 2004 Category: Bell Benton Memorial Poetry Award

Dark away in my hiding place
Where bees are buzzing
and ferns are growing
The lighting dim wherever I go,
And no one can find me now,
Where willow trees
are hanging low
In the still, cold, quiet stream.
I wonder
I wonder if fairies live
Where bees are buzzing
and ferns are growing
and willow trees are hanging
in a still, cold, quiet stream
and I lie down
until I sleep
where fairies live
down by the stream,
dreaming in
my secret hiding place.
