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!
