The Fairy Queen

The Fairy Queen
by Charles E S Fairey

The legendary water nymph
Who lives about the oaken forest,
She can be seen by the River bank
Or by the black mere or wishing well.

Enchanting little children into her world
Where elves and ogres abound
Hidden from adult eyes
Guarding her dream-like realm.

A fabulous world where children play
She sits playing her lute
Bathing in the shimmering lake
Come swim with her the Queen of Fairy Folk.

Drop a penny down the well
And make a wish upon your life
The Fairy Queen will make it true
As she dances about the spring.

Her ancient song, her dreamy speech
Her friends who live in the caves
The ogres beneath the bridge
The Gnomes in the trees,
Come play with the Fairy Queen and her friends
And live within a dream
Where all happiness may be found.

Dance to her music, be forever young
Drink from the fabled fountain
And swim with her to everlasting joy,
The mythical fantastical Fairy Queen.
