Diary 259: The Fairy Tales of Violette


"i have eaten fairy bread
and i have drunk fairy wine
and i've danced in a fairy-ring
among the eglantine

the fairies have enchanted me
and that is how i know
when i look out upon the sea
where the waves blow

that it isn't any wind at all
that stirs them to a froth
but just a laughing elfin sprite
dancing the north

and that is how i always hear
down in the singing brook
a maiden's voice imprisoned where
the willows lean to look

and the willow, she's a princess
although she seems a tree
and all the flowers talk at night
just like you and me

this may seem strange to your mind
but it isn't strange to mine
for i have eaten fairy bread and
drunk the fairies wine."

- from a fairy book

(found quote on lace.and.whimsy's instagram)
