Song of the Snowdrop Fairy

We've been reading seasonal fairy stories to calm down at bedtime and fight the cortisol surge when we miss the time target (which apparently is 6:30 pm. How we are supposed to manage that, I don't know.). Starboy likes reading with the headlamp.

After just a couple of days of this, Starboy opened the book and said in a careful, tiny voice,

"Deep sleeps the winter!
Spring is far away...
Fair maids of February
Stand in the snow."

Another favorite is the Spindleberry Fairy, with her red berries, but he has not learned her song yet.
