Fairy's Tale

Image hosted by Photobucket.com



One of the 187 shots I took on the WorldPhotoDay outing.

Here's a great shot of another statue from "As the Clever Crow Flies" blog. I love how the statue retains her beauty, even faceless.



This Sycamore, oft musical with bees,--
Such tents the Patriarchs loved! O long unharmed
May all its aged boughs o'er-canopy
The small round basin, which this jutting stone
Keeps pure from falling leaves! Long may the Spring,
Quietly as a sleeping infant's breath,
Send up cold waters to the traveller
With soft and even pulse! Nor ever cease
Yon tiny cone of sand its soundless dance,
Which at the bottom, like a Fairy's Page,
As merry and no taller, dances still,
Nor wrinkles the smooth surface of the Fount.
Here twilight is and coolness: here is moss,
A soft seat, and a deep and ample shade.
Thou may'st toil far and find no second tree.
Drink, Pilgrim, here! Here rest! and if thy heart
Be innocent, here too shalt thou refresh
Thy spirit, listening to some gentle sound,
Or passing gale or hum of murmuring bees!

1802.
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge

I *love* that pic and the statue! What a find! A closed, unimaginative mind would have passed it up... ;-)

An example of how being an "eccentric" pays off!
