“Magic
Oh, a bottle of ink, a bottle of ink!
What’s bottled up in a bottle of ink?
Princes and ponies and pirates and bees,
Pixies and brownies and magical keys,
Lions and tigers and ladies and knights,
Colourful peeps at most marvellous sights,
Witches and goblins and fairies and fays,
Heroes who lived in the far-away days—
More wonderful things than you ever could think,
All bottled up in a bottle of ink!”
Blanche Jennings Thompson
