The Mulberry Fairy

Mulberry flower fairy

Here we go round the Mulberry bush!
You remember the rhyme—oh yes!
But which of you know
How Mulberries grow
On the slender branches, drooping low?
Not many of you, I guess.

Someone goes round the Mulberry bush
When nobody’s there to see;
He takes the best
And he leaves the rest,
From top to toe like a Mulberry drest:
This fat little fairy’s he!
