Distant Land of the Faerie World Beyond the Veil

Distant Land Beyond the Veil

distant land

There is a distant land far beyond the veil,
It is the land of the fae where once we knew,
What it was like to traverse over hill and dale,
Among the souls who love life and nature.
The veil has grown heavier over time,
And the land has become ever more distant,
For few now believe in the fae,
Or in the day when life with them was joyful.

At times it was not so joyful, but frustrating
If one had trouble relating to the fae.
For tricky and mischievous they could be,
When the attention they so love
Was not given freely,
And susceptible these little souls are.
Then far from us they moved.
It would behoove us to be kindly to them.

When treated with respect and kindness,
The fae can be benevolent and helpful,
They have good hearts, they are not mindless
Creatures to be shunned with shame.
If you develop a good friendship of trust,
With a faerie, they might tell you their name,
Which would be a high honor indeed,
For their name they do not easily reveal.

The fae believe their power is weakened
If they reveal their name, so be patient
If it is a friendship you are seeking.
One must show they can truly be trusted.
They will test you in subtle ways at times,
By telling you something that is not true,
Then wait to see if repeated by you.
Keep their secrets well and never do tell.

I am an author on TCE and write mainly in poetry and short stories. I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am currently an author on HubPages. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.
