“Warrr-ennn!” Warren, come quick, it’s the Missus, she’s gone Warren. Odette’s short little legs were moving as fast as she could make them go as she came running in from the back yard. “I was outside tending to the frog an takin a wee peek around the yard when a huge white cloud come up an swallowed the missus whole! She an those wee sprites which is always hangin around, their gone I tell ya, gone, just like that!”

Warren jumped up so fast that he knocked the rocking chair he had been sitting in over backward, then grabbed his walking stick that he kept by the door with one hand and Odette’s hand with the other. “‘C’mon Mama, lets go take a peek at what ya been yammerin on about.”

“She was right there” Odette pointed at the ivy hedge then began to wring her hands in her apron. “Oh dear, what’ll we tell the Mister when he gets home!”

“Don’t fret Mama, look see, over there, can ya see that shimmerin kinda dust hangin in the air? That’ll be magical residue, it will. Somethin’s come and swept em over ta the other side. Somethin ta do with them faerie folk I s’pect. If the Missus is with them, she’ll be fine, back in no time, an maybe it’ll even be before the Mister comes round the corner.”

Warren started to wander back to the door, but Odette just stood there watching as the mist settled lightly over the ivy. She swayed back and forth wringing her hands in her apron and mumbling to herself.

“Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear”….

Fun Fairie Facts

You Know a Fairie is Present When...

You hear a whispering of leaves.
You see a whirlwind.
You feel a tingling sensation in your hair.
You have an unexplained loss of time.
You laugh uncontrollably, or feel exceptionally silly.
You see blades of grass bending when there
is no one around.

The Most Likely Place for Fairie Portals Are...

Lake shores
Glades in the forest
Where two roads intersect
Fences and border hedges (this is Arial's favorite)
Stairwells, hallways and landings
Tidal pools
Bends in a road

I would like to give special thanks to Gail Schimmelpfennig for allowing me to put her wonderful poem "Seeking the Muse" on my site. You can read her poem in the fairy poetry section under "Fairies in Word and Song". Gail is Utah State Poetry Society's 2009 Poet of the Year, and I'm proud to say, a dear friend. You can find her on FaceBook where there is a group for the Utah poets.
