Fairy Queen - Inspires and Guides

Greetings all who come in Peace and Compassion.  Below is my Fairy Queen Plaque Altered Art Piece that is available at my Etsy Shop.  She has a "vintage" feel to her and there is a fairy poem on the back so you can use this as a plaque or an "ornament". 

 Many a time I have pondered about the Fairy Queen.  From early childhood, through the years until the present moment.  Mysterious and marvelous is she … real to me and existing in my heart and soul.  She can be found somewhere on this earthy plane, not to be seen by most.  Still, a favored few can see her if only from afar.  

 I will be coming back to write of her from time to time.  Below is a marvelous poem by Kipling.  It just sings to my heart.  I hope it does for you as well. 

I have a thousand men," said he,
"To wait upon my will;
And towers nine upon the Tyne,
And three upon the Till."
"And what care I for your men? " said she,
"Or towers from Tyne to Till?
Still you must go with me," said she,
"To wait upon my will.
And you may lead a thousand men
Nor ever draw the rein,
But before you lead the Fairy Queen
'Twill burst your heart in twain."
He has slipped his foot from the stirrup-bar,
The bridle from his hand,
And he is bound by hand and foot
To the Queen of Fairy Land.
~Rudyard Kipling~

Magical Enchantments to All !

The plaque and the poem fit well together. Nice job! I love poetry and feel it is really under-appreciated these days.
