Each fairy breath of summer, as it blows with loveliness, inspires the blushing rose.
I thought I'd start my return to normal posting by sharing this year's fairy garden! I've made some changes from last year's version (which you can see here if you are interested).
Flittering among the leaves
and dancing past blooms,
laughter like wind chimes
on the breeze,
yet never seen.
But brew a pot of fragrant tea,
and a garden fairy
may join you for a cup.
There is an extra chair if you would like to have a seat?
A couple of frog princes have already arrived. One can always hope!
Maybe a treat too?
(I'll share the recipe for these Neapolitan cupcakes later this week)
Come away oh human child,
To the waters and the wild,
With a fairy hand in hand
For the world's more full of weeping, than you can understand.
~Yeats, "The Stolen Child"
