Song of the Faerie Queen


Dance the joyous dance,
careless and free,
Dance until you can dance no more,
though darkened forest,
though winding brook,
Dance to the sounds of the Wild.

Sing the heartfelt song,
emotional and light,
Sing until you can sing no more,
of love and magic,
of tales long forgotten,
Sing the words of Old.

Listen, just listen,
silent and still,
Listen until you can listen no more,
to the beat of the earth,
to the melody of the sun,
Listen to the rhythm of Nature.

Learn the green lessons
ancient and powerful,
Learn until you can learn no more,
of herbs and charms,
of trees and spells,
Learn the ways of Old

Know the vibrant earth,
loving and solid,
Know until you can know no more,
of roots and beast,
of realms long lost,
Know the well worn path.

Dream your heart's dream,
laughing and flying,
Dream until you can dream no more,
of twirling and spinning,
of soaring ever higher,
Dream of whatever may be.

Rest in my arms,
soft and inviting,
Rest when you've done all you could,
I'll take you to my home,
I'll lay you in my bed,
Rest with me, my darling child.

Faerie Ring
Round and round Singing our peace Ashes to ashes Fleece to fleece Mushrooms and toadstools Flowers and leaves Magic and beauty But the parent grieves Changelings sing Pixies rejoice Elves dance And humans no choice Sing with us Sisters Dance with us Brothers If you're looking for danger You can find no others

Faerie
Faerie Distorted vision, lost in dark, Searching for a silver arc, A golden rune, a grain of sand,         A golden grain of sand, Yet all is stone in Evil's land. She knows that naught is what it seems, She knows that lies have blackened dreams, Still she ne'er recalls the way,         She remembers not the way, How friend was foe on that fateful day. Black despair, deathly night, Whirls her world away from sight, Time is fleeting, time is gone,         Time is ever gone, Hope of life is e'er withdrawn. She

Of the Faerie...
Upon this rock, they call, the Earth Lives a child of man by birth Ruled by tick and chained by tock Slaves to the running, chiming clock Up at seven, In bed by ten Till the cycle turns again Sun up to down they toil and slave For that paper they love to save We are born from hedge and thorn Of wandering stars and nevermore Of nightmares last in their blinking eye The closet monster lurking by In mushroom ring and standing stone We have always made our home Eternal as your sleeping minds Stepping through the world as you are blind We called by some the fairest ones We called by others the Fae We care not for your mortal hear
This is a poëm I wrote about five months ago. I'd been wondering for a long time if and when I would share it with other, but decided now that it was time.

When I wrote this I was in this half daydream/meditation about what it would be like if I were to meet a Faerie Queen. I asked myself; what would she say, what would she be like? I started typing as I wondered about this and this poëm is the result of that. I like to think that I actually connected with something that day, and that these are Her words.

I also decided to take a risk and be bold for a change ;p So I submitted this poëm to the Magical Times [link] a wonderful and awesome Fairy/Pagan magazine that comes out four times a year. If you don't know it yet, make sure to pick up a copy somewhere or order it via their site. I'll let you know as soon as I hear back from them :aww:

i must saw it's very well written..n i can't wait to see wat else u hv to write abt the fey ^^
they hv always had such a mysterious aspect to them that i can't help but be interested in them...i'm read a lot of books abt Faeries....n i like that they dn't make them sounds lik those childhood notion of pretty lil ppl with wings but give them a more unique depiction...

i'll definetly look into that magazine to see what all they have in there =)
