May a sweet fairy lighten your day . .
Today is International Fairy Day, a toast to elemental beings behind what we
generally call nature. Sadly we have now consigned them to legends and myths.
However, next time you admire that beautiful flower, remember the fairies made
it happen! In commemoration of the day let us share the words of Rose Fyleman
“Blind folk see the fairies.
Oh, better far than we,
Who miss the shining of their wings
Because our eyes are filled with things
We do not wish to see.
Deaf folk hear the fairies
However soft their song;
‘Tis we who lose the honey sound
Amid the clamour all around
That beats the whole day long.”
~ Rose Fyleman
