Faery Alphabet ~ C is for Columbine

When I really looked at these columbines growing in the Spring garden, I could see how Cicely Mary Barker found the faery within!

The Song of
The Columbine Fairy

Who shall the chosen fairy be
For letter C?
There's Candytuft, and Cornflower blue,
Chrysanthemum so bold and fine,
And pretty dancing Columbine.

Yes, Columbine! The choice is she;
And with her, see,
An elfin piper, piping sweet
A little tune for those light feet
That dances, among the leaves and flowers
In someone's garden.
(Is it ours?)
