Fairy Friday

The Blackberry Fairy


THE SONG OF THE BLACKBERRY FAIRY

My berries cluster black and thick 
For rich and poor alike to pick.

I'll tear your dress, and cling, and tease, 
And scratch your hands and arms and knees.

I'll stain your fingers and your face, 
And then I'll laugh at your disgrace.

But when the bramble-jelly's made, 


You'll find your trouble well repaid.

Have a lovely weekend!
