Fairy Poem "Rushen Glen" and HOPE Fairy art print and quotes

Good Day To All Who Gather in Kindness and Good Intentions! Below is a fabulous poem from Wonder Tales From Fairy Isles. This enchanting book has just come to my attention and I'm on the lookout for a copy of my own. Hard to do since it's out of print ... but the Fae Folk will send a copy my way soon, I just know it. I have to say the older books have a special something ... at least to me they do. So, I hope you enjoy this and be on the lookout for more from this wonderful book.

Rushen Glen
The pale moon wanes,
The morn is cold,

Each Fairy, Elf and Fay
Snug in a flower

Enwraps herself
To wait the broad bright day.

From our flow`ry beds

We rise again

And bathe in the pearly dew`
Then take the air
With a butterfly pair
Linked to a petal blue.
The evening comes,

Adown the Streams,

We sail to the Rushen Glen

On a lily leaf—

And meet once more
In song and dance again.
-Frances Jenkins Olcott, "Wonder Tales from Fairy Isles", 1929

I have include a picture of my HOPE Fairy. She brings HOPE to our world in which we are all in need of I expect. Below are so absolutely fabulous quotes on HOPE. Enjoy all the good energies.

“Dum spiro, spero (Latin), "While I breath, I hope"” ~Philemon Latin Proverb

“There is no despair so absolute as that which comes with the first moments of our first great sorrow, when we have not yet known what it is to have suffered and be healed, to have despaired and have recovered hope.” ~George Eliot

“Hope is the dream of a soul awake.” ~French Proverb

Thank you for sharing your beautiful artwork and the wonderful poem and quotes ~ I really love the French Proverb.

I also love the quote about animals which goes, "Until one has loved an animal, a part of their soul remains unawakened." ;)

Brightest Blessings,

I absolutely love the quote saying that hope is what awake people feel. I believe that is very true. I love the quote about animals too Lady Caer! I love animals so much. My pets especially are just the most interesting beings I know. They are in so many ways much better than we could ever be.
