“Blind folk see the fairies.

Oh, better far than we,

Who miss the shining of their wings

Because our eyes are filled with things

We do not wish to see.

Deaf folk hear the fairies

However soft their song;

'Tis we who lose the honey sound

Amid the clamour all around

That beats the whole day long”.
