Review of "from Fairies" by Mei-mei Berssenbrugge

A poem from Fairies by Mei-mei Berssenbrugge was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on September 17, 2013.  Shining, light-filled, vibrant images are evoked as the poet walks the reader through the daily life of a woodland fairy.

Ms. Berssenbrugge reveals in her notes that she was inspired by a drought of several years' duration in her home state of New Mexico that caused her to yearn for greener days.  We experienced a drought last year and into this in Kansas, and it was devastating--a slow, blistering roast that cracked the ground, withered the crops, and destroyed once lush lawns.  I could have used Ms. Berssenbrugge's poem then to cheer me up.  Right now, as I write this, it is raining.
