1. Dawn at the Fae Court
As morning dew so quietly gathered
upon the silky petals of flowers
on a meadow beside the riverbed
beneath trees so tall, as ancient towers
where faeries often held merry balls
young children trooped out, enjoying the sun
and soon stumbled into the fae queen's halls
While others broke, giggling, into a run
one tiptoed lightly round her bed of fern,
of softest moss; and timidly, shyly touched
For one brief moment, held in gaze so stern
as queen Titania woke and sat up
she stood quite still, nervously fidgeting
until she noticed: the queen was smiling.
Written by [Linderel]
2. Quiet Wings
Quickening silver, dampened gray,
Past the night and 'neath the day--
The funny fickle faerie flies:
A titian needle through the skies.
The piercing glitt'ring aqua eyes,
The gleeful glint, that gallant guise
That shields the sadness in her heart
And draws herself and self apart.
Written by [Nite_Owl]

in my ear

4. Unheeded Warnings
Seven large mushrooms found in a ring,
surely are but a sign of spring.
Six black crows on the east garden gate,
dark wings and shrill calls do taunt and berate.
Five tablespoons of milk left out on the stoop,
container is empty when Cock crows from his coop.
Four white stones round the dooryard are found,
their faces do sprout from half out of the ground.
Three horse manes are tangled in knots tight and thick,
braided with briers which sting and will prick.
Two red ribbons tied to the old Hawthorn tree,
their arms dancing freely for all eyes to see.
One child by morning away from his bed,
replaced by a changeling of sticks and of thread.
Written by [Crankychangeling]
5. Mourning Fairy
Little fairy on a mushroom
is mourning for the soul's ransom.
"Oh, tell me why,
Why did he have to die?
The sun will never rise,
Your soul has no price.
You gave your life to save mine
But I lost my smile for the rest of time...
Written by [Rochala]
6. Moonlight Dancers
We’re all together,
A group of fluttering
Lithe dancers circling
A tiny flame that
We watch the years
Leave the faces of
And we dance,
All in unison,
The day begins to
Break through the
We scatter, all in
And as night begins
we gather again,
Written by [Alexi Ice]
7. A Fairy Day
In a large field of roses
Butterflies are surrounded by fairies
One sitting on a poppy that closes
Another playing with pixies
A fairy is singing
Singing a song for mother nature
They all have the same purpose here
Make the world a more beautiful place
One of the roses opens
And a little fairy climbs out
She put some fairy dust onto the flower
To make it shine like nothing else
As the sun is leaving for the moon to come
All Fairies go to sleep as their day is done
Tomorrow they will do yet again great things
Maybe you can see them with their lovely wings
Written by [Decla]
8. Said a Fairy to a Dwarf
A dwarf approached a fairy,
who was preening at her reflection
reflected on a cherry.
Then her head snapped up, her eyes wide,
and she assessed the little man,
with tutting little chides.
Then she wrinkled up her tiny nose
And said this to the dwarf
"Where are your wings, such ugly toes!
How do you preen with such ugly clothes?"
The dwarf stroked his beard, and winked at the fairy
and, with a leer, said he this,
"You are indeed contrary.
Your hair's too long, you sigh all day,
and you are the size of a cherry!"
The fairy giggled, her eyes all sparkles,
and smiled at the man,
then, from her pocket, she produced
glittering powder in a can.
"I can make you pretty,"
said she with a dainty little simper,
"With a touch of magic dust, I can turn you chipper."
And on her toadstool did she beckon to the man,
tugging off the lid to the dust,
and holding out her can.
The dwarf came forward, on his knobbly little feet,
and he did reach into the can,
his hand closing greedily on the powdery, fairy sand.
With a lunge, he threw the sand above him,
laughing like a jackle,
dancing around the falling dust with impish little cackles.
And screeching, the fairy burst into laughter,
rolling sweetly on her toadstool,
her hair fluttering about her.
"You fool!" She burst out, giggles pouring from her lips,
and, pointing a finger at the dwarf, laughing she did quip
"A word of warning, little man, never insult a fairy.
And never, from her very hands, accept her powdered cherry!"

9. Stealth Hunt for a Fairy
The wind becomes breathless
Silence crackling with fluttering
Near the ear
So close, and closer, loud, and louder
And in a whirl of attack, eyes meet
All to be seen
Leaving only wonder
And unfulfilled dreams
Written by [Artsy]
In ecstatic flight;
A slight frame
Enjoys in a game
That are all brothers.
Delight in a tree;
All that be
A magic fairy.
Written by [Tickle Me Emo]
A gift from a fairy…
while it treaded
on a keyboard light and merry,
tumbling and swaying as if it were a vast prairie.
upon my keyboard quaint and cheery
smile, it would say with her playful sway.
a gift from a fairy
to a lonesome weary...
Written by [lioneye]
12. Awake and Arise Ye Friends of the Fay
Awake and arise ye friends of the Fay
Dance upon ends and skip on the fray
The Elf Queen is calling with lyre so fair,
So take my hand, I’ll lead you there.
The sprites and the nixies
All dance with the pixies
And the Elf Queen beckons and calls
To you, to traverse these evergreen halls.
Written by [Lady of Lore]
13.Fairy Garden of Our Youth
Pristine folds of fairy white
Gently flutter in the morning breeze
As dawn breaks its first light
We do as we please
Pulling back the curtains
And oh! How we would gaze
On those hot, summer days
As those fairy folk stretched and lazed
Sunning themselves on beds of moss
And we mourned at the loss
When we both grew old
Could no longer see
Those astonishing faries!
And listen instead
To the stories told
By children of Youth
Who's eyes saw the truth
Oh, what a shame we grew
No longer the faries danced in the garden
We loved and knew
Oh how we weep at the loss of youth and naievity
And of the fairies
Who dwelt once upon a time
In our imaginations
And in all our gardens
Written by [Cascading water lillies]
14. Mark of the Fae
Hiding under fallen leaves
Dancing under the silver moon
They left behind a mystic ring
But you shall not see them
Laughing by the winding stream
Singing to each other songs so sweet
They cast a spell over everything
But you will not hear them
Weaving magic under the stars
Sowing wonder throughout the world
Watching from on high on a crystal wing
But few may feel them
Slipping out of sight
Leaving magic in their wake
Laughing away from ear
Lulling you on to find them
Flying through the sky
All numb to their presence
None shall see
But all shall
Know the Fae
