Fairy Hat

Green Elf finds a hat

I found a Fairy's hat today
I wonder how he lost it.
I am so glad I went to play
Where I could come across it.

I wrote a note on onion skin
And stuck it on a thistle:
"If you should want your hat again,
Just whistle me a whistle."

Will he three wishes grant to me
For giving back his hat?
I'll have to think what they will be
If he should promise that.

I tucked it carefully away
Beneath my green silk pillow.
There, secure, its going to stay
In my home beneath the willow.
