Friday: Words From Faerie

In the veils between the worlds, I remember the fairy folk who guard the ancient places. May we walk lightly and with courtesy upon the earth, may no being stay their progress or block their path, so that the hidden household of the earth may be peaceful.

A prayer written by Caitlin Matthews, author, shaman, and Celtic folklorist. This is reprinted in her forward to The Real World of Fairies: A First Person Account by Dora Van Gelder, 1999

Originally from Caitlin Matthews, Celtic Devotional (New York: Crown, 1996).
