THE CANTERBURY BELL FAIRY
Bells that ring from ancient towers--
Give their name to summer flowers--
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--
Mine are pink or purple flowers--
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?"
