On warm summer nights, the Canterbury Bell Fairy sets his flowers swaying. Ding-dong-ding, the bells ring out over the gardens and the countryside, calling the fairies to sing. Fairies enjoy human music. You can lure fairies into revealing themselves by sitting very, very still and stoftly singing the sweetest ballad you know. Although terribly shy, fairies are extremely curious and flock to learn new songs.


The Song of the Canterbury Bell Fairies

Bells that ring from ancient towers-
Canterbury Bells
Give their name to summer flowers
Canterbury Bells!
Do the flower-fairies, playing,
Know what those great bells are saying?
Fairy, in your purple hat,
Little fairy, tell us that!

"Naught I know of bells in towers
Canterbury Bells!
Mine are pink or purple flowers
Canterbury Bells!
When I set them all a-swaying,
Something, too, my bells are saying,
Can't you hear them ding-dong-ding
Calling fairy-folk to sing?"
