A Fairy and a Bee

In the land of somewhere
Where the pixies play
Hidden by tomorrow
They're not seen today

Among the berries blue
A Fairy lives in a juniper tree
Her dearest friend,
Is a honey bee

They flit and flutter
Swoop and sway
From flower to flower
Their greatest joy is to play

As a breeze attacks
One cries to the other "Help me"
The other is quick to lend a hand
Back to the safety of the little tree

In times of fear
In times of merry
The best friend of a fairy is a bee
And for a bee is a fairy
