Let my Birmans bring you to their Faerie World.... are you
ready for this trip?
Beware the kiss of the fairies, you will lose mortality and stay in their world
THE FAIRY CALL
A spell for summoning the fairies
Sit where the cat sits.
Cross your toes,
Close your eyes,
And smell a rose.
Then say under your breath: I believe in fairies, sure as death.
Gadflykins! Gladtrypins! Gutter-puss! and Cass!
Come to me fairy Each lad and lass!
(From: "Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book")
THE LAND OF FAERY
Where nobody gets old and godly and grave,
Where nobody gets old and crafty and wise,
Where nobody gets old and bitter of tongue....
Land of Heart's Desire,
Where beauty has no ebb, decay no flood,
But joy is wisdom, Time an endless song.
(THE LAND OF HEART'S DESIRE, WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS, 1865-1939)
If you take a walk through the forest, at midnight or dawn, you might happen to see the beauty of the
faeries. They are exceptionally intelligent and generally friendly unless they are
bothered. They can best be seen if you ask them politely, never demanding. The most important thing about seeing a faerie is that you must believe in
them, otherwise you will never get a chance.
Faeries are most likely found in forests, meadowlands, near streams and brooks. Signs that a faerie may be near include: feeling as if someone is watching you when you see no one
there, feeling as if an insect is touching you when it appears that there isn't one
there, a wonderful fragrance or hushed giggling.
Remember, only true believers see faeries! If you are lucky enough to see a
faerie, you have experienced one of the most magical moments in your life.

"A note on the use of the word F-A-E-R-IE The words 'fey' and 'faerie' come from the French and started to replace the Old English 'elf' during the Tudor period. Spenser and Shakespeare popularised the change. 'Elfland' and 'Faerieland', 'Elf' and 'Faerie' were and are still interchangeable words."
