Enchanted Fairy Woods Filled With Magic Whimsical Folk Art Print

The Song of Wandering Aengus
~~Willaim Butler Yeats
I went out to the hazel wood,
Because a fire was in my head,
And cut and peeled a hazel wand,
And hooked a berry to a thread;
And when white moths were on the wing,
And moth-like stars were flickering out,
I dropped the berry in a stream
And caught a little silver trout.
When I had laid it on the floor
I went to blow the fire aflame,
But something rustled on the floor,
And some one called me by my name:
It had become a glimmering girl
With apple blossom in her hair
Who called me by my name and ran
And faded through the brightening air.
Though I am old with wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone,
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among the long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun.

Greetings lovers of the fairy folk.  Today, I'm hightlighting this sassy redheaded fairy.  I am so happy how she came out ... I really don't know where all of these delightful fairies comes from ... but I like to think the fairy folk have a hand in it.  Enjoy!

May Your Day Be Filled With Wonder and Magic !  Happiness to ALL !
