100% Irish Linen
I am a linen hanky, as pretty as can be
And with a tuck, a stitch or two
A bonnet was made from me
To wear coming home with Mum
Or on Baptismal Day and then…
I will be put away to await the Wedding Day.
Then on her Wedding Day
A hanky I will be, for…
every Bride needs something old,
That something will be me.
And if the baby is a boy and one day he will marry
He can give his pretty bride
An Irish hanky she can carry.
