the Daisy Fairy

The Song of the Daisy Fairy

Come with me and play
with me,
I’m the babies’ flower;
Make a necklace gay
with me,
Spend the whole long day
with me,
Till the sunset hour.

I must say Good-night,
you know,
Till tomorrow’s playtime;
Close my petals tight,
you know,
Shut the red and white,
you know,
Sleeping till the daytime.

Flower Fairies of the Spring, Cicely Mary Barker

Daisy – Innocence or Simplicity
The daisy gets its name from the Anglo-Saxon phrase “daes eage”, or "day's eye," because of the way they open and close as the sun rises and sets
