They do come

๐Ÿƒ And, when they do come
From neath an earthy mound
They do come
From oโ€™er meadows deep
When they do come
There be no sound
They come
To forage, and to feed
๐Ÿƒ If you shall,
Be kind enough, to leave
A share, it shall be known
Of butter, cheese or milk
Left outside, upon the ground
And when they do come
At night, just mind, It shall be found
๐ŸƒAnd, the passers by
Who pass by
Shall bless you
In return
And leave you
Well alone

Poem written by Athey Thompson

Art by Arthur Rackham
Arthur Rackham was asked which William Shakespeare plays would he like to illustrate. Of course, Arthurโ€™s first choice was A Midsummers Nightโ€™s dream.
