Enchanted Tulips






ENCHANTED TULIPS


TULIPS white and tulips red,
Sweeter than a violet bed!
Say, old Mother Bailey, say
Why your tulips look so gay,
Why they smell so sweet, and why
They bloom on when others die?


"By the pixies' magic power
Do my tulips always flower,
By the pixies' magic spell
Do they give so sweet a smell!
Tulips, tulips, red and white,
Fill the pixies with delight!


"Pixy women, pixy men,
Seek my tulips from the glen;
Midnight come, they may be heard
Singing sweet as any bird,
Singing their wee babes to rest
In the tulips they love best!"

These are lovely colours, I like the idea of cycling throught them. Certainly "enchanted".

Susanne these are beautiful, I am speculating that the red one is the real colored one, lol. These color filters make the whole thing very interesting. As I was scrolling, I said oh this is nice, then I go to next one, oh this is nicest one, and then I hit next one, and next one, ohhhhhh they are all beautiful. Susanne I think you know how to attract and keep people on your blog, btw the poem is nice too. Anna :)
