Interlude: Isobel & the Fairie Queene

610crzhfgtlWhen Isobel met the Fairie Queene

To know the secrets she was keen;

But the Gentry have to test one first

To see if your skills are well rehearsed.

Isobel conjured a roe and a buck

A frog with a cart & a tearful duck.

The Lady herself clapped with fond delight

So they frolicked together until daylight.

Isobel left with a straw in hand,

‘Horse and Hattock!’ the repeated command.

When witches and fairies together dance,

Magic is always the circumstance.

Listen when you are abroad at night

For wondrous Terpsichorean rites.
