Little Lucy loves to read,
Reading hour after hour.
Each story plants a tiny seed
That will grow up into a flower.

She reads within her garden where
The flowers oh so slowly grow.
There's lots and lots of beauty there,
In all the lands where she might go.

Oh, Lucy! Read of queens and kings,
Of girls and boys and unicorns,
Of fairy elves with rainbow wings
And ships that vanish into dawns!

And when you grow up big and tall,
And leave the garden far behind,
Look back, and see within the wall
Your flowers sheltered from the wind.
