There are forces around us, and among us, which
I shall ask you to
allow me to call fairies, and these are ten thousand times more
wonderful, more magical, and more beautiful in their
The world than those of the old fairy tales...
Just go out into the country and sit down quietly
and watch nature at work. Listen to the wind
as it blows, look at the clouds rolling overhead,
and waves rippling on the pond at your feet.
Hearken to the brook as if flows by,
watch the flower buds opening one by one and
then ask yourself, 'How all this is done?: Go out in
the evening and see the dew gather drop by drop
upon the grass, or trace the delicate hour-frost
crystals which bespangle every blade on a
Look at the vivid flashes of lightning in a storm.
Listen to the pealing thunder and then tell me, by
what machinery is all this wonderful work done?
Man does none of it neither could he stop it if he were
to try; for it is all the work of those invisible force or
Whose acquaintance I wish you to make. Day and night
summer and winter, storm or calm, these fairies are
at work and we may hear them and know them and
make friends of them if we will.
