Gretty 'n Gator take their morning stroll
And like all their other walks before
Gator sprawls along around her legs
With his eyes, he excitedly begs
He loves to hear her swamp stories
So, she spins the tale of the swamp fairy…
"She is the one who cares for all swamp denizens
Beautiful, translucent dragonfly wings
Her hair dressed in Spanish moss
Clinging vines, her skin embossed
Clothes of flowers and ferns and leaves
Given by the swamp fairy trees
She wades among the lily pad marshes
Checking on all her fairy swamp charges
She hears their voices, she hears them cry
She sings her healing lullabies
She sprinkles special pixie dust
From mornings' dawn to evenings' dusk"
Gator wonders as they disappear into the cypress trees,
"How does she know where she needs to be?"
Gretty whispers her response,
"Why, she listens to the music of the fairy swamp..."
