the flowers

~*~ The Flowers~*~


All the names I know from nurse
Gardener's garters, Shepherd's purse
Bachelor's buttons, Lady's smock
And the Lady Hollyhock


Fairy places, fairy things
Fairy woods where the wild bee wings
Tiny trees for tiny dames-
These must all be fairy names!


Tiny woods below whose boughs
Shady fairies weave a house
Tiny tree-tops, rose or thyme
Where the braver fairies climb!


Fair are grown-up people's trees
But the fairest woods are these:
Where, if I were not so tall
I should live for good and all.


Robert Louis Stevenson
