This Little Bag Poem by Jane Austen

This Little Bag

Rating: 3.3

This little bag I hope will prove
To be not vainly made--
For, if you should a needle want
It will afford you aid.
And as we are about to part
T'will serve another end,
For when you look upon the Bag
You'll recollect your friend

We need to know more about the actual bag. Was it full of needles? Did it have a mirror on the outside? Otherwise it doesn't make much sense.

Lovely poem. It shows how a small gift can bolster a relationship with a friend in the times to come. Thanks. I am tempted to translate it.
