A Lover's Quarrel Among The Fairies

Rating: 2.6

A moonlight moor. Fairies leading a child.

We will lead you hand in hand
By the willows in the glade,
By the gorse on the high land,

By the pasture where the lambs
Shall awake with lonely bleat,
Shivering closer to their dams

From the rustling of our feet.

A well defined vision of the Wee Folk and the moral man. I love how Yeats comfortably shows the tiniest details that they Wee Folk us, things that many of us mortal take for granted or never look down to see.
