A poem accompanies each picture. Sadly, CM Barker's poetry is not as good:
The Song of The Columbine Fairy
Who shall the chosen fairy be
For letter C?
There's Candytuft, and Cornflower blue,
Chrysanthemum so bold and fine,
And pretty dancing Columbine.
Yes, Columbine! The choice is she;
And with her, see,
An elfin piper, piping sweet
A little tune for those light feet
That dances, among the leaves and flowers
In someone's garden.(Is it ours?)
The coyness at the end especially makes me wince.
In homage to CM Barker, as I contemplate the state of my lawn, I have written the first poem of my own volume, Weed Fairies of the Spring.
Song of the Crabgrass Fairy
Nah nah, nah nah nah.
