Quotations About Fairies I

When I sound the fairy call,
Gather here in silent meeting,
Chin to knee on the orchard wall,
Cooled with dew and cherries eating.
Merry, merry, Take a cherry
Mine are sounder, Mine are rounder
Mine are sweeter, For the eater
When the dews fall. And you'll be fairies all.
~Robert Graves, "Cherry-Time," Fairies and Fusiliers, 1918

Oh! where do fairies hide their heads,
When snow lies on the hills,
When frost has spoiled their mossy beds,
And crystallized their rills?
~Thomas Haynes Bayly

I think that people who can't believe in fairies aren't worth knowing. 
~Tori Amos

And though you should live in a palace of gold, or sleep in a dried up ditch,
You could never be as poor as the fairies are, and never as rich.
~Rose Fyleman

Buttercups in the sunshine look like little cups of gold.
Perhaps the Faeries come to drink the raindrops that they hold.
~Elizabeth T. Dillingham, "A Faery Song"

Raindrops are like fairy whispers. 
~Author Unknown

The little Plumpuppets are fairies of beds;
They have nothing to do but watch sleepyheads;
They turn down the sheets and they tuck you in tight,
And dance on your pillow to wish you good night!
~Christopher Morley

The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve; lovers to bed; 'tis almost fairy time. 
~William Shakespeare

Deaf folk hear the fairies
However soft their song;
'Tis we who lose the honey sound
Amid the clamor all around
That beats the whole day long.
~Rose Fyleman

I'll seek a four-leaved shamrock in all thy fairy dells,
And if I find the charmed leaves, oh, how I'll weave my spells!
~Samuel Lover

The fairies went from the world, dear,
Because men's hearts grew cold:
And only the eyes of children see
What is hidden from the old...
~Kathleen Foyle

Come cuddle close in daddy's coat
Beside the fire so bright,
And hear about the fairy folk
That wander in the night.
~Robert Bird

Are those the magic fairy wands
glistening on the tree
or only winter icicles that I see?
~Author Unknown

When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy. So there ought to be one fairy for every boy or girl. 
~James Matthew Barrie, Peter Pan

Hand in hand, with fairy grace,
Will we sing, and bless this place.
~William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

Deep within the winter forest among the snowdrift wide
You can find a magic place where all the fairies hide....
~Author Unknown

It's easy to believe in magic when you're young. Anything you couldn't explain was magic then. It didn't matter if it was science or a fairy tale. Electricity and elves were both infinitely mysterious and equally possible - elves probably more so. 
~Charles de Lint

Wind chimes in your yard will serenade garden creatures - squirrels, fairies and angels. ~Author Unknown

Any man can lose his hat in a fairy-wind. 
~Irish Saying

There never was a merry world since the fairies left off dancing, and the Parson left conjuring. 
~John Selden, "Parson," Table Talk, 1689
Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.
~William Butler Yeats, "The Land of Heart's Desire," 1894

Fairies are invisible and inaudible like angels. But their magic sparkles in nature. 
~Lynn Holland

The fairy poet takes a sheet
Of moonbeam, silver white;
His ink is dew from daisies sweet,
His pen a point of light.
~Joyce Kilmer

Garden fairies come at dawn,
Bless the flowers then they're gone.
~Author Unknown

If we opened our minds to enjoyment, we might find tranquil pleasures spread about us on every side. We might live with the angels that visit us on every sunbeam, and sit with the fairies who wait on every flower. 
~Samuel Smiles
