My Faerie World

On this page you will see nothing but various pics of faeries, poetry about them, and of course faerie tales. This page is dedicated to Tori Amos and her love for faeries and the Little People. Have fun and remember...the Little People are always watching!

"Hymn of Pan"

 From the forests and highlands
 We come, we come;
 From the river-girt islands
 Where loud waves are dumb
 Listening to my sweet pipings.
 The wind in the leaves and the rushes,
 The bees on the bells of thyme,
 The birds on the myrtle bushes,
 The cicale above the lime,
 And the lizard below in the grass,
 Were as silent as ever old Tmolus was,
 Listening to my sweet pipings.              
 Liquid Peneus was flowing,             
 And all dark Tempe lay
 In Pelion's shadow, outgrowing
 The light of the dying day,
 Speeded by my sweet pipings.
 The Sileni, and Sylvans and Fauns,
 And the Nymphs of the woods and the waves,
 To the edge of the moist river-lawns
 And the brink of the dewy caves,
 And all that did then attend and follow,
 Were silent with love, as you now Apollo,
 With envy of my sweet pipings. 

 I sang of the dancing stars,
 I sang of the daedal Earth,
 And of Heaven - and the giant wars,
 And Love, and Death, and Birth, -
 And then I changed my pipings, -
 Singing how, down the vale of Maenalus
 I pursued a maiden and clasped a reed.
 Gods and men, we are all deluded thus!
 It breaks in our bosom and then we bleed;
 All wept, as I think both ye now would,
 If age or envy had not frozen your blood,
 At the sorrow of my sweet pipings.

             ~~~Percy Bysshe Shelley,1820~~~

Pan', Franz von Stuck, 1908

The wind blows out of the gates of the day,

The wind blows over the lonely of heart,

And the lonely of heart is withered away,

While the faeries dance in a place apart,

Shaking their milk-white feet in a ring,

Tossing their milk-white arms in the air:

For they hear the wind laugh, and murmur and sing

Of a land where even the old are fair,

And even the wise are merry of tongue;

But I heard a reed of Coolaney say,

"When the wind has laughed and murmured and sung,

The lonely of heart is withered away!"

--W. B. Yeats
