Enchanted Fairy Forest - The Stargazers

The gnarled boughs hand darkling down,
    And biers sweep my knees;
The moon is low, like a gold lamp,
    Behind the twisted trees.

O dark and still are the wet fern

    And trees where no birds nest;
What heed have I for night or day
    Who ride a livelong quest?

There is no cockcrow in the dark,

    No bleat from a far fold,
When the Forest Folk begin to stir
    Under the starlight cold.

Rend your wild hair, you elfin things,

    That peep from bush and tree;
I know what strangling arms you reach
    Athwart the dusk to me.

Twist your fierce lips, you false fair things,

    I know what dance you tread
To what drear tune 'neath the cold moon
    O' nights wi' the sheeted dead.
~Cicely Fox Smith

Oh, I love this poem and I found this photo on Etsy.  Her (Deborah) art is enchanting and magical and just wanted to let you all know about her work.  Just click on the picture to get to her shop and enjoy the magic.  Those of you who have been following me for a time now, know that I believe in positive energy and thoughts and affirmations and the whole nine yards.  I do believe in random acts of kindness and I have decided to blog now and then about wonderful artists that I am so lucky to have found.  

May you all find the magic and enchantment that surrounds us each and every day ... and LOVE ... we just cannot forget about LOVE.
