*THE SONG OF*
THE PINK FAIRIES


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


Early in the mornings,
when children still are sleeping,
Or late, late at night-time,
beneath the summer moon,
What are they doing,
the busy fairy people?
Could you creep to spy them,
in silent magic shoon,

You might learn a secret,
among the garden borders,
Something never guessed at,
that no one knows or thinks:
Snip,snip,snip,go busy fairy scissors,
Pinking out the edges
of the petals of the Pinks!


Pink Pinks, white Pinks,
double Pinks, and single,--
Look at them and see
if it's not the truth I tell!
Why call them Pinks
if they weren't pinked out by someone?
And what but fairy scissors
could pink them out so well?
