Flower Fairies of the Spring

SPRING MAGIC

The World is very old;
  But year by year
It groweth new again
  When buds appear

The World is very old,
  And sometimes sad;
But when the daisies come
  The World is glad

The World is very old;
  But every Spring
It groweth young again,
  And fairies sing

Cicely Mary Barker
