Cicely Mary Barker - Flower Fairy Alphabet ~ Gentle fairies, hush your singing: Can you hear my white bells ringing, Ringing as from far away? Who can tell me what they say? Little snowy bells out-springing From the stem and softly ringing - Tell they of a country where Everything is good and fair? Lovely, lovely things for L! Lilac, Lavender as well; And, more sweet than rhyming tells, Lily-of-the-Valley bells.
