Mission Statement: The Baltimore Faerie Faire celebrates the wonders of the natural world, and all the beings that inhabit it, real and imaginary. We seek to to heal, inspire, nurture, entertain and serve our Baltimore community by creating Wonder in an urban Faerie Festival. We strive to find balance between the concrete and the dirt, the practical and the fantastic. Promoting creativity in costume, crafts, music, dance, art and attitude, Baltimore Faerie Faire seeks to create a welcoming space for young and old, dreamers and doers, artists and patrons of the arts.
In the Forest of Steel and Stone
by Kalindi, the Fairie Bard (aka Emily Crum)
In the forest of steel and stone In the chasing limlight shades of dark and bright You cannot see us for the glare But we are there We are there
In the jungle of tumbledown houses Where thought and memory roost in the echoing rafters The gap-toothed windows look empty But we are there We are there
In the rushing river of the asphalt street Among the dancing swirls of a million newspaper mayflies In the pulsing heartbeat of cars as they swish past We are there Oh yes, we are there
In the seemingly empty in-between places Where concrete covers the earth in a cracked blanket And broken glass twinkles in the dancing heat haze We are there, too We are always there
