The Glimpse Poem

There are many poets who have written on the subject of Fairies. Many of the great classic poets and writers are among them. I will list here a sampling of poets names and list one of the more famous works of each. That should be sufficient information for you to look into the works of those poets listed. Space constraints do not at this time allow me to put all these poems up on this site, however, I may add some of these poems at a later time. There are also several websites to be found if one searches on the topic of Fairy Poetry. (see Website Links on the Main Menu) I found one that I thought especially nice, since you can search by author and that gives you a list of Poetry which allows access to each poem.
