In the Garden in the summer
The Fairies splash and play,
They spend their time relaxing
Throughout the long summer days.

They splash in tiny puddles
Left by the dewdrops on the rose,
They squirt little rivers
 From the Gardener's garden hose.

When they get quite weary
And tired from the mess they made,
They rest among the flowers,
In peaceful garden shade.

They use the flower petals
To protect them from the sun,
And when they have rested
They go back and have more fun.

Then when their Mother's call them
To come home to bed at night,
They plan, scheme and can hardly wait
For morning's fresh new light,

So once again in summer
We see their fairy ways,
Spending time relaxing
Throughout the summer days.
