The Brook By Alfred Lord Tennyson

The Brook By Alfred Lord Tennyson I come from haunts of coot and hern, I make a sudden sally And sparkle out among the fern, To bicker down a valley. By thirty hills I hurry down, Or slip between the ridges, By twenty thorpes, a little town, And half a hundred bridges. Till last by […]

A Fairy Song By William Shakespeare

Fairy Land Ii By William Shakespeare

Fairy Land Ii By William Shakespeare YOU spotted snakes with double tongue, Thorny hedgehogs, be not seen; Newts and blind-worms, do no wrong; Come not near our fairy queen.

Oh what can ail thee, knight-at-arms, So haggard and so woe-begone? The squirrel’s granary is full, And the harvest’s done I see a lily on thy brow, […]

The Fairy Child By Lord Dunsanay

The Fairy Child By Lord Dunsanay From the low white walls and the church’s steeple, From our little fields under grass or grain, I’m gone away to the fairy people I shall not come to the town again. You may see a girl with my face and tresses, You may see one come to my […]

The Fairy Pendant By William Bluter Yeats

The Fairy Pendant By William Bluter Yeats First Fairy: Afar from our lawn and our levee, O sister of sorrowful gaze! Where the roses in scarlet are heavy And dream of the end of their days, You move in another dominion And hang o’er the historied stone: Unpruned in your beautiful pinion Who wander and […]

The Fairies’ Farewell By Richard Corbet

The Fairies’ Farewell By Richard Corbet Farewell, rewards and fairies, Good housewives now may say, For now foul sluts in dairies Do fare as well as they; And though they sweep their hearths no less Than maids were wont to do, Yet who of late for cleanliness Finds sixpence in her shoe? Lament, lament, old […]

The Lepracaun; Or, Fairy Shoemaker By William Allingham

The Hill We Climb The Lepracaun; Or, Fairy Shoemaker By William Allingham I Little Cowboy, what have you heard, Up on the lonely rath’s green mound? Only the plaintive yellow bird Sighing in sultry fields around, Chary, chary, chary, chee-ee!– Only the grasshopper and the bee?– “Tip tap, rip-rap, Tick-a-tack-too! Scarlet leather, sewn together, This […]
