Fäeries - were once seen as the grand embodiments of land-spirit. Their refinement in later poesy trivializes them to some extent. Think of (“-tinseled Titania-“ – Robert Graves).
The trick is to restore them to the depth and strength of aboriginal ancestral elements, while retaining all the advantages of their poetic refinement (Svetlana's concept). This is what’s required of NATURE religion in general today. The Faeries have all the grandeur of the “higher” Gods, yet live at one with elements as gay sportive folk. They are in, of and ensoul the elements, while appearing as distinct beings – but they never COMMAND the elements from above as do the haughty Gods.
