Dear Jani,
I wrote a poem about fairies I'd like to share.  Here is my poem:

Fairy Poem
By Gabrielle Roberts
As fairies come out of their bowers,
Their only protection are the flowers.
For humans come with more to seek,
They just can't wait to take a peek.

Just sit and wait it won't be to late.
The fairies have come and some will go,
But don't waist your time looking high and low.

If you are smart then be very wise,
Don't go with those who chose to spy.
I'm sure if you were a fairy too
You would not like someone spying on you.
So, whatever you do, do the right thing
For you may end up in a fairy ring.

Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms
by Thomas Moore (1779-1852)

Believe me, if all those endearing young charms
Which I gaze on so fondly today
Were to change by tomorrow and fleet in my arms
Like fairy gifts fading away.

Thou wouldst still be adored as this moment thou art
Let thy loveliness fade as it will
And around the dear ruin each wish of my heart
Would entwine itself verdantly still.

It is not while beauty and youth are thine own
And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear
That the fervor and faith of a soul can be known
To which time will but make thee more dear.

But as truly loves on to the close
As the sunflower turns to her God when he sets
The same look which she turned when she rose.

Where? byCicely M. Barkerwpe4C.jpg (2856 bytes)

Where are the fairies? Where can we find them?

We’ve seen the fairy-rings they leave behind them!

fae16tn.jpg (19252 bytes)When they have danced all night, Where do they go?

Lark, in the sky above, Say, do you know?

Is it a secret no one is telling?

Why, in your garden Surely they’re dwelling!

No need for journeying, Seeking afar:

Where there are flowers, there fairies are!

In the Light of these Castle Halls

by Susan Dirks-Henry

Years ago, my heart was drawn,
By dancing feet and happy song,
Many an hour, I played along,
In the light of these castle halls.

Twas here I learned to play my harp,
The songs to flow right from the heart,
Twas here my journey, it would start,
In the light of these castle halls.

For fame & glory I did seek,
Away to the Fair on fleeting feet,
For my destiny I was sure to meet, from
The light of these castle halls.

For my journey, it was long,
Silver and gold, I received for song,
Yet for my friends, I did long,
In the light of these castle halls.

And so, now I come,
With happy heart and happy song,
Again, I'm here where I belong,
In the light of these castle halls.

Cherry-Time

When I sound the fairy call, gather here in silent meeting,

Chin to knee on the orchard wall, cooled with dew and cherries eating.

Merry, merry, take a cherry, mine are sounder, mine are rounder,

Mine are sweeter for the eater, when the dews fall, and you'll be fairies all.

by Emily Dickinson

Dear Jani
I would just like to thank you for the great site.
I'm not a Fairie fanatic but was thoroughly captivated by it's beauty   and magic!  So much of fantasy and imagination is lost with adulthood and it's great to find people like yourself, keeping the mystery alive.  After browsing through your site I wrote a little "Fairy poem"

I Dream of you each night I sleep,

and Fairies come to me and weep.

Mischievous Goblins dance outside my door

Guarded beneath the Dragons Claw

Winter moves her arm round me

and Fairies flee away joyfully.

Silhouette of the Unicorn,

behind the screen,

A race with time, She’s dreaming free.

Dawn is at hand. And all that is not,

Turns to grains of sleep.

And so another night magic, comes to an end

for dreaming of you is all I remember.
