Amy Margaret's Five Year Old

Amy Margaret's five years old, 
 Amy Margaret's hair is gold, 
 Dearer twenty-thousand-fold 
 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!
