Cheer Up Mugglewump!



Cheer up Mugglewump, trade sadness for cheer. We’ll play more tomorrow, when morning is here!

Over the weekend, Al Peace who is a great friend of Illusion Magazine sent us this fabulous poem about the Quirgles. Al is part of the team who puts together the wonderful face and body painting event, Paintopia. He is more usually found with a calculator and a spreadsheet, looking at finances, figures and profit and loss, but he is also a wonderful poet and has had his poems published. We want to say a big thank you to Al for writing this wonderful poem about our favourite creatures – The Quirgles!

Introducing…Whisper, the Willow Flyer!

She’s a sweet little lady, as precious as can be,

She flitters through the flowers and dances in the trees.

She’s as pretty as a daisy and as friendly as a Telf.

If you sing a little jingle, you’ll see her for yourself.

She loves to hear a song; it fills her heart with joy.

She’s sure to be a favorite of any girl or boy!
