Bluebell Wood

Bluebell Wood 3, originally uploaded by Ascendingkitty.

The Bluebell Fairies

When all is dark and quiet,
And nobody’s about,
‘Tis then the bluebell fairies
Come dancing softly out.

They first peep from the bluebells
To see that no one’s there —
At us they might be frightened;
They don’t mind Mr. Hare!

They tell him elfin stories
Of wonder and delight,
And creep, when morning wakens,
Back in the bluebells bright.

Mother Nature Stories- 1908.
Howard E. Altemus

faerieland

faerieland, originally uploaded by hkvam.

Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire,
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moonè’s sphere;
And I serve the fairy queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green:
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours,
In those freckles live their savours:
I must go seek some dew-drops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip’s ear.

William Shakespeare
