The Song Of The Beechnut Fairy

O the great and happy Beech,

Glorious and tall!

Changing with the changing months,

Lovely in them all:

(You may eat these.)

Lovely in the leafless time,

Lovelier in green;

Loveliest with golden leaves

And the sky between,

When the nuts are falling fast,

Thrown by little me-

Tiny things to patter down

From a forest tree!

"The Song Of The Beechnut Fairy"
Cecily Mary Barker
English artist and poetess
  Patroness of the English fairies
