Amy Margaret's Five Year Old by William Allingham
Amy Margaret's five years old,
Amy Margaret's hair is gold,
Than gold, is Amy Margaret.
'Amy' is friend, is 'Margaret'
The pearl for crown or carkanet?
Or peeping daisy, summer's pet?
Which are you, Amy Margaret?
A friend, a daisy, and a pearl,
A kindly, simple, precious girl, --
Such, howsoe'er the world may twirl,
Be ever, -- Amy Margaret!
