I first heard the traditional song “White Coral Bells” sung by Laurie Berkner on one of my son’s CDs when he was little:
White coral bells upon a slender stalk.
Lillies of the Valley deck my garden walk.
Oh, don’t you wish that you could hear them ring?
That will only happen when the fairies sing.
Johann loved this song. We sang it together over and over again. He liked to pretend fairies were all around us. Whenever I see our bluebells in bloom, I think of this song, even though they aren’t white Lillies of the Valley. I like to think the fairies like our garden and come to visit. The bluebells are enchanting enough.
