Ode to Fairies

By the moon we sport and play,
With the night begins our day;
As we dance the dew doth fall--
Trip it, little urchins all,
Lightly as the little bee,
Two by two and three by three;
And about we go, and about we go
Round about, round about, in a fine ring
Thus we dance, thus we dance, and thus we sing;
Trip and go, to and fro, over this green
All about, in and out, for our brave queen
We have danced round about, in a fine ring
We have danced lustily, and thus we sing
All about, in and out, over this green
To and fro, trip and go, to our brave queen

from-A Midsummer Night's Dream

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love fairies! So I decided to blog about them today. A fairy is a type of mythological being or legendary creature, a form of spirit, often described as metaphysical, supernatural or preternatural. The word "fairy" derives from the fae of medieval Western European (Old French) folklore and romance. Fairies are generally described as human in appearance and having magical powers.

Here are a few famous Fairies everyone knows: And these 3:
