I spend a little time each week looking for interesting things for my children to write in their copybooks, usually based upon a theme. I will post them here each week as a record for myself and as a help to any other family that wishes to use them.
The Song of the Daffodil Fairy
I'm everyone's darling: the blackbird and starling
Are shouting about me from blossoming boughs;
For I, the Lent Lily, the Daffy-down-dilly,
Have heard though the country the call to arouse.
The orchards are ringing with voices a-singing
The praise of my petticoat, praise of my gown;
The children are playing, and hark! they are saying
That Daffy-down-dilly is come up to town!
