"Fairy Islands" by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite‘The Faerie Glade’ By Wandi Zhu The Society June 21, 2017 Beauty, High School Submissions, Poetry 4 Comments In a secluded forest glade, Where sunlight shines and shadows fade, The faeries come to dance and play Upon a bright warm summer’s day. Light are their footsteps, quick their feet On shimmering wings, they do fleet. Throughout the glade, clear voices ring; The songs of faerie folk they sing. Among them is the Faerie Queen, Her beauty unlike what humans ’ve seen. Dew drops like diamonds in her hair, Reflecting sunlight through the air. They’re making sure the glade’s all well, Each laugh is like a tinkling bell. To nature bound, they live as one, And thrive beneath the summer sun. As dusk arrives, the sun sinks low, To sleep in flower beds they go, For soon as dawn brings a new day The faeries again come out to play.
