Don't Blow It, Whispered The Wish Fairy - Poem by Mary Angela Douglas

it's picture book pretty and candy box locked
it's the frock of all frocks in the shop window
you saved up for didn't you

it's the book you hid in the bookshop
hoping no one else would find it
of rarities most rare

it's the something out of sight
but on its way
almost any day

you can think of
any time now
don't say, tapping your foot, impatiently

or you'll cause delays
or the mail truck may break down
or go to the wrong house

the wrong town
with your treasured treasure
sent from afar

your wishing star come true
I'd be nice
If I were you.
