For my Baby Daughter

You shall gather bluebells and wear ribbons in the May

And dance ‘neath summer moonbeams as fairy children play.

Trace paths of woodland mazes and rest on beds of moss

And skate on rinks of diamond dust laid down by old Jack Frost.

And robin, wren and blackbird shall sing your lullabies

As Milky Way lays stardust trails in magical night skies. 

The trees shall bow to greet you each one a cherished friend 

And you shall gather treasure buried at the rainbows end.

Your feet shall skip on carpets of golden autumn leaf

And sister bee shall share with you her honey oh so sweet.

You shall wear a berry crown and trailing blossom cloak

And hear the secret music laid down by fairy folk.

All this awaits you sweet one, my precious baby girl

All this and more my sweet one, you’ll dance and skip and twirl.

You shall sip nectar dew from acorn cups upon the break of day

And you shall gather bluebells and wear ribbons in the May.
