A Year With the Fairies: The Fairies' Telephone

The Fairies' Telephone
Did you ever follow the silver thread
Tat the spider spins through the air?
Did it ever tickle your nose when you ran,
Or tangle itself in your hair?

That silver thread is a telephone wire
With a ting-a-ling bell at the end,
And a Fairy is there with a spicy black clove
At her ear while she talks with her friend.
