Fae Songs

In honor of my latest Flash Fiction - Welcome - I'd like to share some faery-inspirations with you in the next few posts: music, lyrics, words, and some of my poetry. You decide what faces Sage when she is spirited away Behind the Veil.


It only seems appropriate to start with one of my favorites, "The Fairy Ring." Gary Stadler's faery music has fueled my imagination and nourished my muses since I was a teenager.

Let the magic of the Fae spirit you away with inspiration.


"The Fairy Ring"

Twas a longing came into my heart
I could not sense a name
It tore me from my sheltered hearth
Then swift to nature came
The beauty of the soft green hills
The singing of the trees
They left my soul more empty still
I could not find a peace
I could not find a peace
I saw the shining fairy ring
Myself within its heart
And I found a lonely comfort
Though its magic touched me not
Its magic touched me not
I wandered by a running stream
And touched its stones for strength
Then I sat underneath a great old tree
Then drifted into sleep
It lifted me with gentle powers
And took me far away
When I awoke the darkest night
Had chased away the day
I lay within a fairy ring
Myself within its heart
And I found a lonely comfort
Yet the magic touched me not
The magic touched me not
My mind a whirl of clouded dreams
I knew not where I dwelled
Yet in that shining fairy ring
A calming word I felt
Oh thrice I called unto the Fey
And thrice about this turned
I fell upon living earth
And in that moment learned
For there that night I felt a touch
And in that moment knew
The fairy magic had rebuilt
My hearts desire true
For in that touch I felt such love
And in that moment knew
That I did touch a perfect love
My heart's desire true
My heart's desire true
I lay within a fairy ring
Myself within its heart
And I found a loving comfort there
The love that I had sought
The love that I had sought
My words at once are stilled within
My heart has felt so much
I oft returned to the magic ring
To feel the fairy touch
Oh now when 'ere the moon is full
I bid my cares depart
And kneel within the shining ring
To touch the fairies heart
To touch the fairies heart
To touch the fairies heart

"Fairy Night Songs"
By: Gary Stadler and Stephannie

Dancing a spiral we sing unaware
On faery night wings our songs fill the air
Making a circle of magic and light
Watched silently by the fay of the night

Our hearts full of love and our arms open wide
We hold the key to the faeries delight
Song in our hearts belong in the air
The words of our wisdom we bring forth to share

The songs in the night
As we dance 'round the flame
The Fairy Nightsongs are never the same
The words from our lips as we sing for the night
Impart to the Fay our hearts truest sight

Sounds of the forest in sweet harmony
We give the gift of our song to the faery
Dancing a spiral we sing unaware
The faery night wings our song fill the air

The songs in the night
As we dance 'round the flame
The Fairy Nightsongs are never the same
The words from our lips as we sing for the night
Impart to the Fay our hearts truest sight

Ahh.....

Dancing a spiral we sing unaware
On faery night wings our songs fill the air
Making a circle of magic and light
Watched silently by the fay of the night

The songs in the night
As we dance 'round the flame
The Fairy Nightsongs are never the same
The words from our lips as we sing for the night
Impart to the Fay our hearts truest sight

Our hearts full of love and our arms open wide
We hold the key to the faeries delight
Song in our hearts belong in the air
The words of our wisdom we bring forth to share

The songs in the night
As we dance 'round the flame
The Fairy Nightsongs are never the same
The words from our lips as we sing for the night
Impart to the Fay our hearts truest sight

Sounds of the forest in sweet harmony
We give the gift of our song to the faery
Dancing a spiral we sing unaware
The faery night wings our song fill the air.

Or perhaps Sage is returning Home and being welcomed by her Kin... Or could Elphame/Land of Faerie be the origin of her soul and have her recent recurring dreams unlocked Past Life memories of times gone by...


"Veil of Elphame"


I've searched the mountains
forest and sea
seeking the homeland
of my memories

Haunted by visions
Longing like the sea
time passes by me
and still I am not free

Lift the veil of Elphame
Let me see the light
Lift the veil of the Faerie
guide me home tonight.

How can I soar alone
when my wings are at rest?
I yearn to be there
In the land of the blss'd

So light me a candle
watch the dark shadows fade
And I must journey on
For the choice I have made

Lift the veil of Elphame
let me see the Light
Lift the veil of the Faerie
Take me home tonight

My lone heart guides me
brings me home through the night
Carries me onward
And into the light

To wander the shadows
to see the truth from afar
to sigh in the moonlight
dancing magic of stars

Lift the Veil of Elphame
let me see the light
lift the veil of faerie
guide me home tonight 
~~~~

Will Sage fall under the spell of Faerie and be haunted by the "Wild Faeries Dance" (Gary Stadler and Wendy Rule)?

Or maybe Sage will find peace in her heart at last:

I need to check these out from home on Rhapsody. The words are beautiful. I love "finding" new music. Thank you!

Let me know what you think of it, Davee. I often use the instrumental pieces for meditation. :)
