The Faery Forest

What would you expect to find in a forest? What would you expect to find in a faery forest? Would you ever be able to escape once you entered? Or would you be carried away by the folk who might live there? How will you know once you've entered the point of no return? Our nature poem for this week might just give you the answer to that last question.

The Faery Forest
by Sara Teasdale, 1884-1933
from Helen of Troy And Other Poems, 1911

The faery forest glimmered
Beneath an ivory moon,
The silver grasses shimmered
Against a faery tune.

Beneath the silken silence
The crystal branches slept,
And dreaming through the dew-fall
The cold white blossoms wept.
