    Jasmin Fairy Artist: Cicely Mary Barker

  • Linda D.

    Cicely Mary Barker - Flower Fairy Alphabet ~ The Song of The Jasmine Fairy ~ In the heat of summer days With sunshine all ablaze, Here, here are cool green bowers, Starry with Jasmine flowers; Sweet-scented, like a dream Of Fairyland they seem. And when the long hot day At length has worn away, And twilight deepens, till The darkness comes - then, still, The glimmering Jasmine white Gives fragrance to the night.

The Song of The Lilac Fairy White May is flowering, Red May beside; Laburnum is showering Gold far and wide; But I sing of Lilac, The dearly loved Lilac, Lilac, in Maytime A joy and pride! I love her so much That I can never tell If she's sweeter to look at, or sweeter to smell.

Having books by Cicely Mary Barker in my childhood gave me a taste for beautiful pictures that are accurate, pretty but never cutesy or twee.

Gorgeous antique illustration from a children's fairy tale book pre 1923.

Cicely Mary Barker - Flower Fairy Alphabet ~ Golden King of marsh and swamp, Reigning in your springtime pomp, Hear the little elves you've found Trespassing on royal ground:- "Please, your Kingship, we were told Of your shinning cups of gold; So we came here, just to see - Not to rob your Majesty!" Golden Kingcup, well I know You will smile and let them go! Yet let human folk beware How they thieve and trespass there: Kingcup-laden, they may lose In the swamp their boots and shoes!
