Song of the Acorn Fairy

When I was a little girl I loved fairies.  I used to have pictures of Cicely Mary Barker's fairy's all over my bedroom.  Here is one of my favourites.


To English folk the mighty oak
Is England's noblest tree;
Its hard-grained wood is strong and
good As English hearts can be.
And would you know how oak-trees grow,
The secret may be told:
You do but need to plant for seed
One acorn in the mould'
For even so, long years ago,
Were born the oaks of old.
