The song of the Poppy Fairy....

I love Cicely Mary Baker's Flower Fairies
and I have nearly a complete set of her beautiful illustration..

here's the poppy fairy, one of my favorites
from my little collage a day book.

and so...

The song of the Poppy Fairy
by: Cicely Mary Baker..

The green wheat's a-growing,
the lark sings on high; 
In a scarlet silk a- glowing,
Here stand I.

The wheat's turning yellow,
Ripening for sheaves;
I hear the little fellow
Who scare the bird- thieves.

Now the harvest's ended,
The wheat-field is bare;
But still, red and splendid,
I am there.

happy weekend!!
