Barker, Cicely Mary - The Harebell Fairy



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Cicely Mary Barker - Harebell

O bells, on stems so thin and fine
No human ear
Your sound can hear
O lightly chiming bells of mine!
When dim and dewy twilight falls
Then comes the time
When harebells chime
The fairy feasts and fairy balls
They tinkle while the fairies play
With dance and song
The whole night long
Till daybreak wakens cold and grey
And elfin music fades away.

The source of the experience
