This week’s fairy tale The Daisy was an incredibly quirky little story. It centres around a little daisy, growing out in a field and a lark. The lark comes down to the daisy one day and they become fond of one another. After a while, the lark is captured and put into a cage. The daisy desperately wants to help the lark. A couple of boys come by and pull up a patch of grass (which of course, included the daisy) and put it in the cage as well. Unfortunately, the boys don’t put any water in the cage, the daisy really wants to help and wills the boys to come back to put water in the lark’s cage. This doesn’t happen, and the lark dies. The boys are devastated, despite not caring for the lark properly. They dig the lark a grave and bury it. The daisy has wilted by this point, so they chuck the daisy to the roadside.
