As to whether there are really any fairies or not, that is a difficult question. The Editor never saw any himself, but he knew several people who have seen them-in the Highlands-and heard their music. If ever you are in Nether Lochaber, go to the Fairy Hill, and you may hear the music your- self, as grown-up people have done, but you must go on a fine day. In the meantime, here's a poem for all the young people out there.....
Books Yellow, Red, and Green and Blue,
All true, or just as good as true,
And here's a Folklore Book just for YOU!
Hard is the path from A to Z,
And puzzling to a curly head,
Yet leads to Books-Green, Yellow and Red.
For every child should understand
That letters from the first were planned
To guide us into Fairy Land
So labour at your Alphabet,
For by that learning shall you get
To lands where Fairies may be met.
And going where this pathway goes,
You too, at last, may find, who knows?
The Garden of the Singing Rose.
