Summer Fairies Redoux
“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.”― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
More summer fairies have arrived in yellow and purple to join the pink fairy from my last post. I have included a smattering of fairy related quotes to accompany the photos. The pink fairy had butterfly wings. I wanted to vary the style so the purple fairy has dragon fly wings.
What do you think the the yellow fairy's wings resemble?
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan “All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.”
Andrew Lang--"Of all the minor creatures of mythology, fairies are the most beautiful, the most numerous, the most memorable."
Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,For I would ride with you upon the wind,Run on the top of the disheveled tide,And dance upon the mountains like a flame.~William Butler Yeats, "The Land of Heart's Desire," 1894
Where are the fairies? Where can we find them?
We've seen the fairy rings, they leave behind them when they have danced all night,
Where do they go? Lark, in the sky above, Say, do you know?
It is a secret, no one is telling.
Why, in your garden, surely their dwelling!
No need for journeying, Seeking afar:
Where there are flowers, there fairies are!"
--Cicely Mary Barker
Brian Froud and Alan Lee, Preface of Faeries--"The myths and legends about Faerie are many and diverse, and often contradictory. Only one thing is certain - that nothing is certain. All things are possible in the land of Faerie."
