Clockwork Faery Song

(This post was inspired by a photograph of a tiny clockwork faery created by Susan Beatrice, All Natural Arts)

Once upon a time there was a clockwork faery.
Beautiful and gold she was intricately tiny.
She would dance down among the flowers,
dance and dance for hours and hours.

She whirred and she flitted, flickering lightly
silver flashing sparkling whitely
She tiptoed and she spun so very sprightly
down in the flowers, way way down.

Every morning the spiders would wind her
set her spinning through the shining
dancing out, out among the flowers
dance and dance for hours and hours.

She whirred and she flitted, flickering lightly
silver flashing sparkling whitely
She tiptoed and she spun so very sprightly
down in the flowers, way way down.

There came a time when she got slower
All the spiders came to see her
They wrapped her up in a sparkling bower
and waited for her hours and hours

She whirred and she flitted, flickering lightly
silver flashing sparkling whitely
She tiptoed and she spun so very sprightly
down in the flowers, way way down.

The spiders spun so very gorgeous
webs of light and just adored her
She danced again, out among the flowers
dance and dance for hours and hours

She whirred and she flitted, flickering lightly
silver flashing sparkling whitely
She tiptoed and she spun so very sprightly
down in the flowers, way way down.
