I’D LOVE TO BE A FAIRY CHILD

Children born of fairy stock

Never need for shirt or frock

Never want for food or fire

Always get their heart’s desire

Jingle pockets full of gold

Marry when they’re seven years old

Every fairy child may keep

Two strong ponies and ten sheep

All have houses each his own

Built of brick or granite stone

They live on cherries, they run wild

I’d love to be a fairy child

(Written by Robert Graves)
