The Fearie and the Wren


"I am more real

than you, to man."

said the faerie to the wren.


"Poppycock and twaddle-speak!

Watch indeed what you say!"

said the wren to the fae.

"I am seen in every sky,

I am song, feather and bone.

Only in folklore is where you are known."


"But sir bird, indeed,

This is the point I defend!"

Said the faerie to the wren.

"To be real, magic is believed!

The only way I can be!

Men have faith in what they cannot see."


"I tire of this, you have a point,

Let us not waste this day!"

grumbled the wren to the fae.

Still, the faerie is requiring the imagination, whereas the wren is fully visible. Good contrast.
