Katherine Mansfield

(14 October 1888 – 9 January 1923 / Wellington)

A New Hymn


Sing a song of men's pyjamas,
Half-past-six has got a pair,
And he's wearing them this evening,
And he's looking such a dear.

Sing a song of frocks with pockets
I have got one, it is so's
I can use my `nitial hankies
Every time I blow my nose.
