Here is another wonderful rhyme about fairies, from the lovely Rose Fyleman

THE FAIRIES HAVE NEVER A PENNY TO SPEND

The fairies have never a penny to spend,
They haven't a thing to put by,
But theirs is the dower of bird and of flower
And theirs are the earth and the sky.
And though you should live in a palace of gold
or sleep in a dried up ditch,
You could never be por as the fairies are,
And never as rich.


Since ever and ever the world began
They have danced like a ribbon of flame,
They have sang their song through the centuries long
And yet it is never the same.
And though you be foolish or though you be wise,
With hair of silver or gold,
You could never be young as the fairies are,
And never as old.
Written by the wonderful Rose Fyleman (1877 -1957)
she was born in a suburb of Nottingham. She was trained as a singer and and she taught in her sister's school. She has another wonderful poem about fairies and it is one of my very favourites. It is called "A Fairy went A - Marketing." I will write it in "Old Favourites" as it is my special favourite fairy rhyme.
