The world keeps on turning, and, like my then eight year old son said, “the sun goes up, the sun goes down.” If I remember right, he was quite upset by the fact that it is just one day after another! That might true, but each new day brings more adventures…

My recent trip into the land of the Fae is a very good example of that fact. Now, here I am starring down at a little person who, in turn, is starring up at me and giving me her warmest, brightest smile while tugging on my pant leg. It is such an infectious smile that I find myself smiling back.

“Sure an I realize that we are a wee bit early, an I be hoping that it won’t be to much of an inconvenience, us showing up here like this, but we were terribly excited you know, an just couldn’t wait to get here!” (seems like I had said something like that not to long ago). I sat down on the step so that I could be closer to eye level with my new friend.

This must be Odette, she was wearing a tall pointed green cap and an apron with small pink flowers over a white top that had ruffles at the neck and cuffs and a skirt that was dark maroon. Over this she wore a wool traveling cape that hung to the ground.

I held out my hand. “Hello,you must be Odette, where’s Warren?” She shook the finger I offered and pointed over to the bushes. “There he be!” We watched as Warren pushed his way out of the ivy that had grown under the Laural bush, pulling two steamer trunks with him. He wore the same wool cape but his cap was red and he had on a baggy, and some what crumpled, dark brown jacket over a turquoise shirt that was hanging out from underneath it. They both wore wooden clogs that made a hollow tapping sound when they walked.

“Aye, and we’re be’in just a wee bit tired too, after all the travel’en we been do’in.” He stopped and pulled a large green linen hanky out of his pocket and wiped his face with it, then shook my finger. “It’s be’en a pleasure meet’n ya!”

They had the most pleasant soft Irish lilt in their voice and it made listening to them speak a real joy (I don’t think that I ever knew where they were coming from). It was going to be even better than I first thought, having them here. I tried to help them with their bags and trunks, but Warren would have nothing of it. “I’ll just be put’en these bags under here for a time.” then he pushed all the bags under the cover to my patio table. “Sure an they’ll be cozy an safe under here till we’ll be need’n em.”

I stood up and opened the door for the couple to enter, but Warren hung back. He looked up at me with a sheepish grin then pointed toward the ivy and made a clicking sound. Out hopped a big brown frog. “An what’ll ya be want’n me to be do’in with him?”…”Bill!!!”

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
Islands
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
Thresholds

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.
