I've been trying to find the words of a poem that was told to my nana and then to my mother and thought I'd see if anyone here can help.
Unfortunatly my mother can only remember a couple of lines. I got a bit more from someone who's great auntie remembers it but it's not all there.
We think it's called 'The fairy' but dont know who it would be by. I've tried the internet but cant find anything.
This is what I have so far
As I was walking homeward one early summers day
I saw a pretty fairy winging on her way
her bonney was a bluebell
A daisy was her gown
Her wings were beams of sunshine
Trimmed with thistle downs
I'd seen she'd been to market
And as I hurried by
I peeped into her basket
To see what I could spy
A pair of golden slippers
A reel of silver thead
A lovely jar of honey
And a weenie loaf of bread
Shiny silver needle and a spool of golden thread
