A Jolly Family

This poem comes from a collection of letters, cards and written pages I found stored in a ‘Marlborough Christmas Cards’ packet.  Some of the letters are dated 1930s and an invitation is from 1902 but I can’t find an indication of when this poem was written.

A Jolly Family

A very grand old gentleman is Mr Carving Knife.

He lives in Sideboard Castle with, Lady Fork, his wife.

Their little ones are teaspoon boys as happy as can be.

Their favourite game is running round in all your cups of tea.

And ?Bash? the saltspoon small and sweet lives in the cruet cradle.

And the nurses name what do you think is Mrs Granny Ladle.

S. E. W.
