Today’s poem isn’t late: it’s after midnight in the UK but I’m in the USA so I have another couple of hours!

However I am exhausted, so this may be a little weird. It’s another science story.

In the silver twilight
On the desert sand
See the fairy circles
Patterning the land.

Can you keep a secret?
If you get the chance
You can see the fairies
Dance their nightly dance.

Little folk together
Cast their magic spell
Bring the desert water
From their wishing well.

Little fairy termites
-Not a pretty sight-
Beautify the desert
Dancing through the night.
