Windows to the otherwhere
Where the folk are fey and fair
Oh, you mortals all beware,
Beware the fair-folk’s call
Beauties bright around you blaze
Things not meant for mortals’ gaze
Beyond your skill to give them praise
But do not heed their call.
At their table be you fed,
Passing far your mortal bread,
Come and sup with them instead
Now will you heed their call?
Forgeting all your mortal woe
Like the faeries laughing go
No more do you troubles know
Now answering the call
You are mortal, they are not
Entertainment’s all they sought
Now not spared a second thought
Still caught within their thrall.
Oh you mortals one and all,
Stray not from your earthly halls,
Heed me now ere you shall fall
And beware the fair-folk’s call.
