I love faeries.
I love the lore and legends.
Fairies have magic powers which perform both good and bad deeds. They can fly, change shape and make themselves invisible to human beings. Most fairies are usually helpful, but there are several who behave mischievously and occasionally act cruel.

Faeries are said to hold special magical powers and protect the "earth". There are Garden Faeries which protect the flowers and plants, Faeries which protect the animals and wildlife and Faeries which protect and guard the newborn. Hence, the story of Walt Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" when the 3 Faeries presented their "gifts" to Aurora: The gift of song, the gift of beauty, and the gift of protection from the evil faerie, Maleficent.



The land of faery
Where nobody gets old and godly and grave,
Where nobody gets old and crafty and wise,
Where nobody gets old and bitter of tongue....
Land of Heart's Desire,
Where beauty has no ebb, decay no flood,
But joy is wisdom, Time an endless song.

(The Land of Heart's Desire,
William Butler Yeats, 1865-1939)




"When the first baby laughed for the first time,
the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went
skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies."

~Sir James M. Barrie~ (1860-1937)





I'd Love To Be A Fairy's Child

Children born of fairy stock
Never need for shirt or frock,
Never want for food or fire,
Always get their heart's desire:
Jingle pockets full of gold,
Marry when they're seven years old.
Every fairy child may keep
Two strong ponies and ten sheep;
All have houses, each his own,
Built of brick or granite stone;
They live on cherries, they run wild--
I'd love to be a Fairy's child.

~ Robert Graves ~
(1918)



Every time a child
says, "I don't believe in fairies"
there is a little fairy somewhere
that falls down dead.

~Sir James Barrie~
(1860-1937)



Believe in the faeries that make dreams come true,
Believe in the wonder, the stars and the moon,
Believe in the magic from the faeries above,
They dance on the flowers and sing songs of love.
And if you just believe and always stay true
The faeries will be there to watch over you!
