Waterfall Fairy-by Carol Lawson...Born and brought up in Giggleswick, a village in England's Yorkshire Dales..Living in the country, she always loved to draw and paint from nature: flowers, animals, birds - and had a particular interest in fairy tales, which she read constantly.
. . . the purl of a little valley fall About three spans wide and two spans tall Over a table of solid rock And into a scoop of the self-same block; The purl of a runlet that never ceases In stir of kingdoms, in wars, in peaces; With a hollow, boiling voice it speaks And has spoken since hills were turfless peaks." -- Thomas Hardy
