The Canterbury Bell Fairy

Wednesday, August 08, 2012 Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
Bells that ring from ancient towers-
Canterbury Bells-
Give their name to summer flowers-
Canterbury Bells!
Do the flower-fairies, playing,
Know what those great bells are saying?
Fairy, in your purple hat,
Little fairy, tell us that!

"Naught I know of bells in towers-
Canterbury Bells!
Mine are pink or purple flowers-
Canterbury Bells!
When I set them all a-swaying,
Something, too, my bells are saying,
Can't you hear them --ding-dong-ding--
Calling fairy-folk to sing?

As you probably know I love the Flower Fairies. Have now decided to make a quilt of them all when I have enough, so will start collecting.
