“The Fairy Balloon”
Way down the Scottish glen rode fast the fairy men,
Each upon a cricket thoroughbred, sir.
They were quite plainly seen, dressed all in hunter’s green
With thistles in their jockey caps of red, sir.

Morning-Glory’s Easter Bonnet
Miss Glory, discarding last year’s creation,
For Easter must have a pale pink innovation;
The dream of last year is faded and small,
And blue’s the wrong color – it’s not chic at all.
“An American Beauty,” says Posy, “is style,
To wear my old bonnet is hardly worth while,
Since Paris proclaims that a Madame Cochet
Is entirely too small and absurdly passé.”

“TOADS AND DIAMONDS”
“Oh, sir,” replied the girl, “my mother has turned me out of doors.”
The Prince was amazed when he saw five pearls and diamonds fall shining from her mouth. “What does this mean?” he cried. “Tell me all that has happened.”
So with all manner of flowers and jewels slipping from her lips as she talked, she told him the whole story, and he fell in love with her while she was telling it.
