Country Pleasures - Poem by Cicely Fox Smith

I always rather bar
A Bazaar.

I simply cannot bear
A Fancy Fair.

I’m not keen
On Dancing on the Green.

An Olde Englyshe revel
Is the very devil.

I just won’t go
To a Baby Show.

I particularly dislike
A decorated bike.

But the thing I absolutely hate
Is a Common or Garden Fete.
