Lyrics and Music: Bill Roper
In winter-white forest they’re dancing again.
They float and they leap in the arms of the wind
And in her cold breath see them starting to spin.
In bitter-cold winter watch magic begin.
The icicles ring with a crystalline tone
And a music that you’ve never known.
Deep in the forest, the ice fairies dance all alone.
The sunlight in winter is bitter and cold
And the snow on the ground has the chance to grow old
And give birth to fairies who dance in the air.
Look sharp in the forest, you’ll see they are there.
They dance and they twirl round the trunks of the trees.
They stay deep in hiding so nobody sees
That fairies still dance in a world that mankind calls its own.
They dance through the winter on ice-crystal wings,
Their magic preserving the promise of spring.
Walk soft through the forest some cold winter day
And be very still – you’ll catch fairies at play.
They dance to the music of crystalline sound
As the sunlight reflects off the snow-covered ground.
They’ll dance through the winter until the spring thaw,
But though they are gone, you’ll still know what you saw.
That magic survives, it’s alive, and it thrives on its own.
