THE SONG OF THE APPLE BLOSSOM FAIRIES
Up in the tree we see you, blossom-babies, All pink and white; We think there must be fairies to protect you From frost and blight, Until, some windy day, in drifts of petals, You take your flight.
You'll fly away! But if we wait with patience, Some day we'll find Here, in your place, full-grown and ripe, the apples You left behind- A goodly gift indeed, from blossom-babies To human-kind!
