Faerie walk

 

Oh sweet faerie come thee forth,

I spy thy wings behind the oak,

I catch a glimpse of dainty feet,

Oh come thee forth so we may speak.

 

Hide not from me I mean no harm,

'Twould be a treat, please take my arm,

Parade around the woods with me,

We'd be the talk neath every tree.

 

What scandal 'twixt the owls and elves,

Tu-whit tu-whoo amongst themselves,

What shock, what gossip, there would be,

If thou where walking out with me.

 

I pledge my heart and all I am,

If thou would come and take my hand,

Pray that thou wouldst consider me,

Your Valentine, your love to be.
