Fairy Day

Jorgelina has invited me to her Day of the Fairies virtual party !

This year Fairy Day is 24th June and to celebrate Midsummer there will be lots of fairy stuff on my blog this week ! Starring below in this beautiful painting by Arthur Rackham are King and Queen of the fairies - Oberon and Titania in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Song for a Summer Evening
Mildred Bowers Armstrong

Fireflies in the twilight -
The fairies might be there -
Each with a little winking star
Showing in her hair.
And when the trees are still, and one
Leaf alone is blowing,
Perhaps a pixie flew from it,

going where he was going.

Don't forget - beware of toadstool rings ! And watch out for those tricksy pixies !
