I’d Love To Be A Fairy’s Child

I’d Love To Be A Fairy’s Child By Robert Graves! Robert Graves was once an English poet who lived from 1895-1985. He grew to be recognized as a conflict poet, and he posted three books of poetry whilst on lively responsibility at some point of World War I. This poem was once posted the equal 12 months the warfare ended, and it can be felt that Robert Graves was once writing about his want for young people to face a less difficult life, one that’s now not stuffed with so a good deal of pain, suffering, and unmet needs.

I’d Love To Be A Fairy’s Child

Children born of fairy stock
Never need for shirt or frock,
Never want for food or fire,
Always get their heart’s desire:
Jingle pockets full of gold,
Marry when they’re seven years old.
Every fairy child may keep
Two strong ponies and ten sheep;
All have houses, each his own,
Built of brick or granite stone;
They live on cherries, they run wild–
I’d love to be a Fairy’s child.
