We are fairies from fairy land, happy today,
And our dresses are made from the moon's silver ray,
Our wings are of gauze lately washed by the dew,
And flash from their folds ev'ry bright rainbow hue.
So we dance on the dewdrops and on the lake's breast,
On the rainbow that curves o'er the waterfall's crest,
But forth rides the sun in his chariot on high
And home all the bright rainbow fairies must fly.
