The Holly Fairy

holly-flower-fairy

The Holly Fairy is the jolliest
Little fairy of them all
With her rosy scarlet cheeks
She brings her bright fruits after fall

In her little dress of green
And her shoes of ruby red
She makes the Winter cheerful
And keeps the birds well fed

She tiptoes through the prickles
And polishes all the berries
At Christmas time especially
She helps us to feel merry

When you hang your Holly wreath
Upon the entrance to your home
Know that good luck will come your way
For red and green are the colours of the Gnomes

The Gnomes they lend their palette
To Holly fairies one and all
They also tend to the trees from the ground below
And make sure all is well with roots and soil

These little Nature helpers
All work together as one everywhere
Wouldn’t it be lovely
If all humans worked together without a care
