William Allingham (19 March 1824 – 18 November 1889 / Donegal / Ireland)
Amy Margaret's Five Year Old
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!
