Enchanted Tulips and Other Verses for Children. Keary, M. (Maud).
page: 78


  • A FAIRY’S house stands in a wood,
  • Midst fairy trees and flowers,
  • Where daisies sing like little birds
  • Between the sun and showers,
  • And grasses whisper tiny things
  • About this world of ours.
  • Such flowers are there beside the way,
  • Lilies and hollyhocks:
  • Blow off their stalks to tell the time
  • Tall dandelion clocks;
  • While harebells ring an hourly chime
  • Like a wound music‐box.
  • Some day shall we two try to find
  • This strange enchanted place?
  • Go hand in hand through flower‐lit woods
  • Where living trees embrace—
  • And suddenly, as in a dream,
  • Behold a fairy’s face!
