The Fairy’s Invitation

From The Sun, May 9, 1915. By Lillian MacDonald.

Dear child, I’ve brought a toadstool,
    It’s a table for our feast,
And a cowslip (such a bargain—
    Worth three daisies at the least!)

With five small cups upon it,
    Full of sparkling, shining dew,
And of violets for perfume
    We will scatter just a few.

We’ve pollen in a rose leaf;
    Other dainties, more or less;
For it takes such choice refreshments
    To make parties a success.

Please come at half past midnight;
    I’ll send Glowworm to attend.
Until supper time, believe me,
    Your devoted Fairy Friend.
