Come Fairies take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame.
The land of Faery, Where nobody gets old and godly and grave, Where nobody gets old and crafty and wise, Where nobody gets old and bitter of tongue.
~William Butler Yeats
Up the airy mountain, Down the rushy glen, We daren't go a-hunting For fear of little men; Wee folk, good folk, Trooping all together, Green jacket, red cap, And white owl's feather ! ~ William Allingham, The Fairies
Come with us hand in hand Join us in play and joyous dance awaken from your dream of worldly worries now light as a feather as graceful as autumn leaves falling hear the child calling
Experience the Fairy Kingdom
This is the Fairy land. O spite of spites, We talk with goblins, owls, and sprites! If we obey them not, this will ensue: They'll suck our breath, or pinch us black and blue.
~ William Shakespeare, The Comedy of Errors (Dromio of Syracuse at II, ii)
Where the bee sucks, there suck I; In a cowslip's bell I lie; There I couch when owls do cry. On the bat's back I do fly After summer merrily.
~William Shakespeare, The Tempest (Ariel at V, i)
