Type of spiritual experience


A description of the experience

The Song of the Mountain Ash Fairy – Cicely Mary Barker

They thought me once, a magic tree
Of wondrous lucky charm
And at the door they planted me
To keep the house from harm

They have no fear of witchcraft now
Yet here I am today
I've hung my berries from the bough
And merrily I say

Come, all you blackbirds, bring your wives
Your sons and daughters too
The finest banquet of your lives
Is here prepared for you

The source of the experience

Barker, Cicely Mary
