#FridayFantasy . . . The Lady’s-Smock Fairy

The Lady’s-Smock Fairy 💐🌸
Where the grass is damp and green,
Where the shallow streams are flowing,
Where the cowslip buds are showing,
I am seen.
Dainty as a fairy’s frock
White or mauve, or elfin sewing,
‘Tis the meadow-maiden growing-
Lady’s smock.

From: Spring Songs with Music from Flower Fairies of the Spring (1926)
~ Cicely Mary Barker~ English~ Children’s Book Illustrator, Master Flower Fairy Artist
1895 – 1973
