The Red Campion Fairy

Red Campion flower fairies

Here’s a cheerful somebody,
By the woodland’s edge;
Campion the many-named,
Coming when the bluebells come,
When they’re gone, he stays,
(Round Robin, Red Robin)
All the summer days.

Soldiers’ Buttons, Robin Flower,
In the lane or wood;
Robin Redbreast, Red Jack,
Yes, and Robin Hood!
