Gone were the fairies from the meadows, gone the dryads from the woods.
Their lives seemed linked to that of the trees, like those of Fauns or Dryads.
The Dryads were wood-nymphs who were supposed to watch over vegetation.
The Dryads were young and beautiful nymphs who were regarded as semi-goddesses.
Bird and beast people, if not the dryads, are frightened from the groves.
His brooks and trees are the abode of dryads and hamadryads—they live and talk.
And look at the nymphs and dryads which those hair-dressers present.
Surely if anyone may wear living jewels it should be dryads.
Loudly laughing danced the dryads through the whirling leaves.
The dryads danced past, and the nymphs looked out inquisitively.
