May Fairies

May greetings
The Song of the May Fairy

My buds, they cluster small and green
the sunshine gaineth heat
soon shall the hawthorn tree be clothed
as with a snowy sheet

O magic sight, the hedge is white
my scent is very sweet
and lo, where I am come indeed
the spring and summer meet

Cicely Mary Barker
