Lend me. I pray, thy magic wand,

That shall my labour lighten "

Nay," said the dame, "a better gift

I bring thy life to brighten


"Ten little workmen, brave and swift,

Who ever shall obey thee,

Lay on them what command thou wilt,

And prove their skill I pray thee."

Ten dwarfs flew out from under,

"The maiden watched them do her work,

Her blue eyes big with wonder




Now here, now there, with nimble feet

They ran to do her pleasure,

" Kind Fairy Bountiful," she cried,

Give me this wondrous treasure."

These servants good and clever,

But, pretty one, remember this, .

Let them be idle never."
