|The Fairy Child - Jose Ortiz|
For September's Sunday Story I've chosen 'The Fairy Child', beautifully illustrated by the wonderfully talented artist Jose Ortiz.
Two of the illustrations contained in the story were included in one of my earlier posts called Fabulous Fairies.
This story appeared in 'Once Upon a Time' children's magazine.
Issue #55 published 28 February 1970.
A card I bought this week to send to a friend. I love the poem (Yeats was born in Dublin):
|The Stolen Child by William Butler Yeats|
At the beginning of last week I was ill in bed for a couple of days. The first day it rained from morning to night - which was good as I slept the whole time! The second morning was glorious with wonderful sunshine. I lay in bed and looked at the garden through the window - this is what I saw. It was lovely and I could lie and watch all the little birds darting about! (I'm quite fine now.)
Even when I was very small I liked to stop and smell the roses. . .
