THE MOTHER, THE NURSE, AND THE FAIRY pdf free download. Give me a son! The blessing sent, Were ever parents more content? How partial are their doting eyes! No child is half so fair and wise. Waked to the morning’s pleasing care, The mother rose, and sought her heir. She saw the nurse, like one possess’d, With wringing hands, and sobbing breast. ‘Sure some disaster hath befell: Speak, nurse; I hope the boy is well.’ ‘Dear madam, think not me to blame; Invisible the fairy came: Your precious babe is hence conveyed, And in the place a changeling laid. Where are the father’s mouth and nose, The mother’s eyes, as black as sloes? See here a shocking awkward creature, That speaks a fool in every feature.’ ‘The woman’s blind,’ the mother cries; ‘I see wit sparkle in his eyes.’
