Stroll through your garden when the Heliotrope Fairy's rich purple flowers are in bloom and soon you will tell, she has perfumed the garden with a delicious smell. She invites the other fairies to sit under her scented blossoms and daydream about the sweet treats that they love to eat.
The Song of the Heliotrope Fairy
Heliotrope's my name; and why
People call me "Cherry Pie",
That I really do not know;
But perhaps they call me so,
'Cause I give them such a treat,
Just like something nice to eat.
For my scent-O come and smell it!
How can words describe or tell it?
And my buds and flowers, see,
Soft and rich and velvety-
Deepest purple first, that fades
To the palest lilac shades.
Well-beloved, I know, am I-
Heliotrope, or Cherry Pie!
