A Faery, Fairy Place

A Faery, Fairy Place




The magic of Nature is all around us. Sometimes these magical energies take the form of the Fae. Gentle, powerful, kind and mischevious spirits are all part of this seldom visible realm of Nature's children.

They love morning dew, mossy hillocks, shaded glens and humans who grant them respect but leave them alone. Some will say they are fantasy and some swear they have seen them, who is to say what is real? Faeries live in hearts of children and dreamers. May they always fill our hearts with joy and delight.





 

Soft winds blow across the hills

Fae Folk dance beneath the rising Moon

Mushrooms sprout to form a magical ring

Sacred trees watch this wonderous thing

The grace and the power as Faeries sing

To win the favor of Faeries it is said
"Leave them a bit of cake or bread"
"Leave them honey or mead or wine"

A nice saucer of milk is always fine
And sparkly things are quite a treat
Tiny houses, gems and bits of lace
Always puts a smile on a Faery face.




 

 

Danu's Dance

Warm and moist beneath the hill

voices and laughter are soft and shrill

glints of light and shadows long move

dancing & merrying the long night thru

Danu's children in morning emerge anew

Leaf Row

Slumber and waking each in their time

music and laughter interlace and combine

earnest crafts folk of diminutive size

dance with creativity before the eyes

and tumbling out the treasures come

Leaf Row

The land is quiet and still above

no hint of the secrets within the hill

honey flows and mead is good

this  place between, below & above

the magic is and always was

Leaf Row

Words are treasures polished bright

poems by day and rhythms by night

interlaces adorn each glowing page

painted in berry juice, pollen & gall

words slide into being for one and all

Leaf Row

Words of Danu, Druides and Sages

thoughts and truths for the coming ages

never a care or woe is penned here

the land above is sleepwalking near 

beneath the hill each word is dear

Leaf Row

Warm and moist beneath the hill

voices and laughter are seldom still

glints of light and flashes of fire glow

open secrets all the wee folks know

Danu's children are spun of light

A wonderful Fairy Book for children of all ages is
"Queen Zixi of Ix" by Frank Baum, author of the "Wizard of Oz".
Arthur Rackham is an artist whose paintings of Faeries are especially sensitive
and loved by all. You can find his Faery Art in any good-sized bookstore.








There are a number of Pagan Traditions that follow the Faery Faith. Some work with

"people of the hill", the ancient Tuatha de Danann, who honored the Goddess Danu.

Faery Rings and Faery Trees are often spoken of and held in great reverence.



There are stories of the Fae in all cultures, the best known being the Fae of Celtic lands. Many well respected and notable people have believed in the Fae, including Gerald Gardner and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  Although most of us will never see the Fae, their presence can be unmistakeably felt in many places, where Nature flourishes, so do the Faery Folk.

The community of
Findhorn is one such place that has sought the favors of the Fae.

The bountiful crops and magical energies of this land have been well documented

in a number of books and articles.  A website that you might enjoy that deals with

Nature spirits  and their connection to Findhorn.    .







There are several delightful films that tell tales of faery magic including "A Fairy Story", "Into the West" and "The Secret of Roan Inish".  Both films call forth Faery magick. "Into the West" is my personal favorite, although the Fae are never directly seen in this film, their presence spins this tale of two young Irish Traveler boys and a Faery horse who is named Tir Na Nog.

The popular TV show "The Highlander" is another example of Fae Magic and Lore in our contemporary cultural.  Duncan McCloud was shunned by his family who thought him to be a Faery Changeling.  Such tales speak to our long association with the Faery.
