Scottish Faerie Mad Tea Party !

Hello everyone!
I am so glad you could come to my 
Mad Scottish Faerie Tea!
Thank You Vanessa
from
A Fanciful Twist 
For Hosting such a delightful event!




Ere Long ago in the land of the Fae
A Scottish Faerie Gairdin lay, 


And There in the Faerie Gairdin he did rome,



The Scottish Piper on his journey all alone,  



When he came upon, 
the Gypsy Camp, and here he Pipped,
his lonesome song, 



The Gypsy Queen....
                         Fortunes told.......
                                        Spells written......
                                             Charms given.......

        Potions for inner sight !!!
       To send our Piper on his flight.......
Home!


And, on his journey......
he did stray to places and people of the day.....
I say......do you Lads know the way?







To find my Clan of long ago,
I must go........
Over monadh, and cliffs, 
to see again 
 my ancient hearth and teach, 
Land of my Athair 


And here I Be........, 
                         Alas I See........,
my fellow peasants greeting Me, 
Join us 
To share a pint of mead, 
then the cake to feed, 

"Merry Meet and Merry Part, and Merry Meet Again" !!!


I have found from whence I came !!!


Faeries Here and There, 
  



And Everywhere, 

With  the lovely Lassies
of the Eve, 
My journey tis end........

"For Aye  come to play the Bagpipes tonight , 
to celebrate with you Mad Tea Delights!!!!!"



Go bring to me a pint o wine,
And fill it in a silver tassie
That I may drink, before I go,
A service to my bonnie lassie,
The boat rocks at the pier o Leith,
Fu loud the wind blaws, frae the Ferry,
The ship rides by the Berwick-Law,
And I maun leave my bony Mary
