When the fairies sing

I've finished the back of the jumper I'm knitting with my Christmas yarn: Jaeger Baby Merino Four Ply. There are two panels of this pattern, which is called Lily of the Valley. This put into my head a song we used to sing in the Brownies (sick bags ready):
White coral bells upon a slender stalk
Lilies of the valley in my garden walk.
Oh how I wish that I could hear them ring
That will happen only when the fairies sing.
