*THE SONG OF*
THE TULIP FAIRY


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


Our stalks are very straight and tall,
Our colours clear and bright;
Too many-hued to name them all--
Red, yellow, pink, or white.

And some are splashed, and some, maybe,
As dark as any plum.
From tulip-fields across the sea
To England did we come.

We were a peaceful country's pride,
And Holland is its name.
Now in your gardens we abide--
And aren't you glad we came?

(But long ago, long ago, tulips were
brought from Persian gardens, before
there were any in Holland.)
