    As a child I purchased one of Eliza Cook's poetry books for 1 old penny at a jumble sale and still have it today. I learnt by heart and performed ' The Mouse and the Cake' one Christmas to my family, all of us would perform either a song, poem, some magic for the adults when we all got together as a family.

Buttercups And Daisies

I never see a young hand hold
The starry bunch of white and gold,
But something warm and fresh will start
About the region of my heart; -
My smile expires into a sigh;
I feel a struggling in my eye,
'Twixt humid drop and sparkling ray,
Till rolling tears have won their way;
For, soul and brain will travel back,
