The Fairies’ Balloon
The feathery ball of the dandelion gay
Is a silver and white balloon,
It wafts the Fairies clear up to the sky
And they visit the stars and the moon.
Sometimes they ride for a night and a day
And sail o’er the billowy main,
And then over mountains and valleys
To their mystical castles in Spain.
A Year With the Fairies.
