Midsummer Day

The Song of the Daisy Fairy

Come with me and play with me,
I’m the babies’ flower;
Make a necklace gay with me,
Spend the whole long day with me,
Till the sunset hour.

I must say Good-night, you know,
Till tomorrow’s playtime;
Close my petals tight, you know,
Shut the red and white, you know,
Sleeping till the daytime.

Flower Fairies of the Spring
~~ Cicely Mary Barker ~~

Today is midsummer day and a day of not only the magic of fairies but also a day for me to celebrate. I love the autumn and winter season best and today marks the shortening of the days. May today brings you joys of summer's bounty.....
