THE SONG OFTHE DAFFODIL FAIRY
I'm everyone's darling: the blackbird and starling
Are shouting about me from blossoming boughs;
For I, the Lent Lily, the Daffy-down-dilly,
Have heard through the country the call to arouse.
The orchards are ringing with voices a-singing
The praise of my petticoat, praise of my gown
The children are playing, and hark! they are saying
That Daffy-down-dilly is come up to town!
from "Flower Fairies of the Spring"by Cicely Mary Barker
Sorry, the scan is horrid! It's much softer and prettier in person. :)
