... but when you're not?
"There are never enough hours in the day,"
The tiny tooth fairy was heard to say.
"Far too short are those daylight hours,
When I must rest and pump up my powers.

By the time I wash and dry
My wings in readiness to fly,
Take enforced rest
to be my sparkling best
My wings aren't the only things waiting to dry.
My eyes get moist with frustration... I cry.

It wouldn't be so bad, but I MUST visit at night,
Can't sneak 'neath the pillow until out goes the light.
Little children around the world expect to find money,
When the first rays of morning shine so sunny.
It's not really hard to see why I say,
There are never enough hours in the day."
