“She is our moon, our tidal pull. She is the rich deep beneath the sea, the buried treasure, the expression in the owl’s eye, the perfume in the wild rose. She is what the water says when it moves.”
– Patricia A. McKillip
This bit of poetry inspires me in my jewelry work, but also it would make a lovely text tattoo. I’m seriously thinking about it for my forearm.
“The winds that awakened the stars
Are blowing through my blood.”
― W. B. Yeats
“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
“….enchanted worlds still exist because the child within us never dies. The doorways may be more obscure, but we can still seek them out. There are still noble adventures to undertake. There are still trees that speak and caverns that lead to nether realms. There will always be faeries and elves within nature because they will always be dancing within our hearts.” ~Ted Andrews
Thoughts like the lovely quote are always in my head as I work…
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.
