The Song Of The Snowdrop Fairy
Deep sleeps the winter, cold, wet and grey;
Surely all the world is dead; Spring is far away.
Wait! The world shall waken; it is not dead, for lo,
The fair maids of February stand in the snow!
|Snowdrop, Daffodil, Crocus and Violet|
She found the poem in a Flower Fairies book that I was given for my birthday ( September 1973), and used my 40 year old Ladybird Wild Flower book (January 1974 - my mum wrote the dates received in all my books!) to copy the flowers. Seeing the books that I loved so much as a child now giving my own child such joy is beautiful, it makes me so happy!
