First Line: We do not know
Last Line: Some day we'll see them in the wood
Alternate Author Name(s): Auden, W. H.

We do not know
if there be fairies now
Or no.
But why should we ourselves involve
In questions which we cannot solve.
O let's pretend it's so
And then perhaps if we are good
Some day we'll see them in the wood.
