Artspark #95 - Faerie

Crossposted to artspark

This is a glamour: the bright faerie folk
Have touched a jewelled dewdrop to your eyes
Filling your sight with rainbows.  Careful, child:
This is a glamour.  This is not the world.

This is a glamour: the unseelie ones
Have touched a raven feather to your eyes
Filling your sight with shadows.  Courage, child:
This is a glamour.  This is not the world.



I originally planned this as the wording for a pair of paintings, but since I'm not going to get round to them for a while (and they may bacome a triptych) I thought I'd let it stand or fall on its own merits.
