Every time we go for our walk at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, I never fail to stop by the fairy garden.
Even fairies and gnomes like to spend time at the beach.
"Spread your wings...
and let the fairy in you fly."
"The fairy poet takes a sheet
Of moonbeam, silver white;
His ink is dew from daisies sweet,
His pen a point of light."
"The wall is silence, the grass is sleep,
Tall trees of peace their vigil keep,
And the Fairy of Dreams with moth-wings furled
Plays soft on her flute to the drowsy world."
~Ida Rentoul Outhwaite~
"And as the seasons come and go, here's something you might like to know. There are fairies everywhere: under bushes, in the air, playing games just like you play, singing through their busy day. So listen, touch and look around - in the air and on the ground. And if you watch all nature's things, you might just see a fairy's wing.
Hand in hand, with fairy grace,
Will we sing and bless this place."
~William Shakespeare - A Midsummer Night's Dream~
"Why should we strive, with cynic frown, to knock their fairy castles down?"
"Soft moss a downy pillow makes,
And green leaves spread a tent,
Where Faerie fold may rest
And sleep until their night is spent.
The bluebird sings a lullaby,
The firefly gives a light,
The twinkling stars are candles bright,
Sleep, Faeries all, Good Night."
~Elizabeth T. Dillingham - A Faery Song~
