There is no other creature as magical, as delicate and as gracious as fairies. Do you belive in fairies?
“Fairies are invisible and inaudible like angels. But their magic sparkles in nature. “
“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”
~William Butler Yeats, “The Stolen Child”
“We the Fairies, blithe and antic,
Of dimensions not gigantic,
Though the moonshine mostly keep us,
Oft in orchards frisk and peep us.”
“Blind folk see the fairies.
Oh, better far than we,
Who miss the shining of their wings
Because our eyes are filled with things
We do not wish to see.”
“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”
~William Butler Yeats, “The Land of Heart’s Desire,” 1894
