Fairy Music

I found a little fairy flute

Beneath a harebell blue;

I sat me down upon the moss

And blew a note or two.

And as I blew the rabbits came

Around me in the sun,

And little mice and velvet moles

Came creeping, one by one.

A swallow perched upon my head,

A robin on my thumb,

The thrushes sang in tune with me,

The bees began to hum.

I loved to see them all around

And wished they'd always stay,

When down a little fairy flew

And snatched my flute away!

And then the swallow fluttered off,

And gone were all the bees,

The rabbits ran, and I was left

Alone among the trees!
