I STOOD against the window
And looked between the bars,
And there were strings of fairies
A FAIRY went a-marketing
She bought a little fish;
She put it in a crystal bowl
As I was walking in the rain
I met a fairy down a lane.
We walked along the road together,
I soon forgot about the weather.
THERE are fairies at the bottom of our garden!
It's not so very, very far away;
You pass the gardner's shed and you just keep straight ahead -
I do so hope they've really come to stay.
I WISH I liked rice pudding,
I wish I were a twin,
I wish some day a real live fairy
Would just come walking in.
The best game the fairies play,
The best game of all,
Is sliding down steeples—
WOULDN'T it be lovely if the rain came down
Till the water was quite high over all the town?
If the cabs and buses all were set afloat,
And we had to go to school in a little boat?
MY brother has a little flute
Of gold and ivory,
He found it on a summer night
