Daffs on My Bedside Table

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!
Flower Fairies of the Spring
Cicely Mary Barker
