Child of the pure unclouded brow And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet, and I and thou Are half a life asunder,
Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.
I have not seen thy sunny face, Nor heard thy silver laughter;
No thought of me shall find a place In thy young life's hereafter------
Enough that now thou wilt not fail
To listen to my fairy-tale.
