First published in Ireland in 1850, William Allingham's "The Fairies" was instantly popular among Victorian children and has remained a standard in poetry anthologies ever since.
This delightful poem has been illustrated for today's audience by Julia Oleksiak and beautifully expressed by Nina Leone, a master of the spoken word.
The Fairies — with its combination of humour, fantasy, enchantment, and mischief — will weave its spell afresh each time it is read.
Up the airy mountain,
Down the rushy glen,
We daren't go a-hunting
For fear of little men...
Beware these fairies! They keep secrets. They cast spells. They cause mischief wherever they go.
