"Stretching Her Wings" - Lindsay Archer...you took your Angel wings way too soon my darling Vylette this was not supposed to happen! Your dear Mommy never got a chance to play with you to gaze into your beautiful eyes to hear your sweet voice. Those responsible for this horrible loss must be held responsible! Justice for Vylette @ Facebook.com
"Stretching Her Wings" - Lindsay Archer
Virgo on the 4th House Cusp. Virgo energy is analytical and precise, always separating out what is worthwhile and worth supporting from that which is outmoded and of no further use. A mental earth sign, here the mind takes control over matter. This is the sign of 'ways and means', implementation, instrumentation, physical effectiveness and efficiency. Virgo energy is always facilitating, often caring more for others than for itself.
Margaret W. Tarrant (1888-1959) - “Fairies Midst Sweet Peas”
Of course, we all know about leprechauns, the mythical creatures that seem to be found only in Irish folklore. They are described as male fae that appear as tiny, wizened old men. They often ply the trade of shoemaker.
Cicely Mary Barker - Flower Fairy Alphabet - At the edge of the woodland Where good fairies dwell, Stands, on the look-out, A brave sentinel. At the call of his bugle Out the elves run, Ready for anything, Danger, or fun, Hunting, or warfare, By moonshine or sun. With bluebells and campions The woodlands are gay, Where bronzy-leaved Bugle Keeps watch night and day.
