I'm trying to find a poem that my grandfather used to recite, I only remember one part, and vaguely at that, about catching a fairy and picking him up by the wings, or maybe plucking its wings off (weird I know) . Anyways, I know its not much to go off of. He did say it was something he had to memorize in school, so it would have been written before 1930 at the latest.

    Was your grandad irish?Or is W B Yeats popular in America?The first big name I think of when faeries are mentioned is Yeats so you might want to look around there...
