  • Music:

they curtsey in the meadow grass

while looking through my old childhood books.. I stumbled upon one of my favourites. A treasury of flower fairies by Cicely Mary Barker. I remember turning the pages when I was a runt, and hoping to land on the prettiest fairy.

The Scabious Fairy reminded me of this community... :)

The Song of the Scabious Fairy
Like frilly cushions full of pins
For tiny dames and and fairykinds;

Or else like dancers decked with gems,
My flowers sway on slender stems.

They curtsey in the meadow grass,
And nod to butterflies who they pass.
