Dandelion Fairy Clocks
How do Fairies tell the time?
Surely girls and boys should know.
First they find a dandelion
Run to seed, and then -they blow!
Poof! and it is one o'clock!
Poof! poof! that will make two!
Poof! poof! poof! and three is chiming!
What I say is strange but true
If, when you have counted twelve
And some seeds still remain,
Worthless is that floral time piece
Find another, -try again.
Thus the Fairie's tell the time
But a fact that you should know
Is that they are, when they're counting
Very careful how they blow.
