First Mother or Corn Mother is the Native American Goddess of nourishment, and many Native Americans honor Her; She is the personification of maize and the fertility of the Earth. She is a Triple Goddess in that She grows from young to old, eventually sacrificing Herself so that Her body may nourish and seed the Earth with corn so that Her people may live and eat.
The Corn Mother’
In the house with the tortoise chair
She will give birth to the pearl
to the beautiful feather….
There she sits on the tortoise
Swelling to give us birth
On your way, on your way
Child be on your way to me here,
You whom I made new….
–Aztec poem to the Corn Mother–

The Faerie sits,a toadstool her throne,wondering quietly,why she is alone.
A fairy (also fay, fae; from faery, faerie, “realm of the fays”) is a type of mythical being or legendary creature in European folklore, a form of spirit, often described as metaphysical, supernatural or preternatural. Fairies resemble various beings of other mythologies, though even folklore that uses the term fairy offers many definitions. Sometimes the term describes any magical creature, including goblins or gnomes: at other times, the term only describes a specific type of more ethereal creature or sprite. Various folkloristic traditions refer to them euphemistically, by names such as wee folk, good folk, people of peace, fair folk (Welsh tylwyth teg).
Much of the folklore about fairies revolves around protection from their malice. Although in modern culture they are often depicted as young, sometimes winged, humanoids of small stature.
