Flower Fairies of the Summer

SPRING GOES, SUMMER COMES

  The little darling, Spring,
  has run away;
The Sunshine grew too hot for her to stay.

  She kissed her sister, Summer,
  And she said:
"When I am gone, you must be queen instead."

   Now reigns the Lady Summer,
  Round whose feet
A thousand fairies flock with blossoms sweet.

Cicely Mary Barker.
