THE MAN IN THE HIGH HAT–WELL FANCY THAT

Cute-Sleeping-Baby-Funny-Hat

“A Memory”

When I was as high as that
I saw a poet in his hat.
I think the poet must have smiled
At such a solemn gazing child.
Now wasn`t it a funny thing
To get a sight of J.M. Synge,
And notice nothing but his hat?
Yet life is often queer like that.

~~ L.A.G. Strong ~~

L.A.G. Strong (1896-1958) was a highly versatile scribbler of some 20 books, children`s literature, plays, movie scriptwriter, critic and some time poet of ingenious whimsy — of which the above item is a charming example.
