*THE SONG OF*
THE LAVENDER FAIRY


~*~*~*~*~*~*~


"Lavender's blue, diddle diddle"--
So goes the song;
All round her bush, diddle diddle,
Butterflies throng;
(They love her well, diddle diddle,
So do the bees;)
While she herself, diddle diddle,
Sways in the breeze!

"Lavender's blue, diddle diddle,
Lavender's green";
She'll scent the clothes, diddle diddle,
Put away clean--
Clean from the wash, diddle diddle,
Hanky and sheet;
Lavender's spikes, diddle diddle,
Make them all sweet!

(The word "blue" was often used in the old days where
we should say "purple" or "mauve".)
