If you have a special garden,
Where flowers and herbs abound.
Then take a pinch of fairy dust,
And sprinkle it around.
The fairies will take notice,
And at the end of day,
They'll tiptoe out upon the grass,
And dance the night away.
~Carla J. Nelson~
How to tell if a fairy is around:
Soft chiming bells
A strong scent of grass, apples or wild violets
Strange, haunting or jovial music
Mysterious giggling that comes out of thin air
Large patches of four-leaf clovers
You are followed by a crow or a raven.
Well, there you go!
