The fairys’ gift (To a child born on All Fools’ Day, 1917.) A pointed cap and jan­gling bells

They’ll give you on your Chris­ten­ing Day, And may the Good Folk teach you spells To charm sad looks away. Sun­shine and mirth shall light your face, And Puck, that tip-toe, freck­led elf, His rarest gift shall bring: the grace

Of laugh­ing at One­self!
