Interlude: Fairy Woods

wood fairy Le Chemin des Écoliers

Do not go into the fairy woods
Though their logs burn long and hot;
You might flee a vengeful sprite
— Or torture if you’re caught!

Do not go into the fairy woods
Though its beauties always charm;
The Gentry are a fickle folk
— And you may come to harm!
