Can you conceive a Fairy Godmother The subject of a strong religious call? In snow or shine, from bed to bed she runs, All twinkling smiles and texts and pious tales, Her mittened hands, that ever give or pray, Bearing a sheaf of tracts, a bag of buns: A wee old maid that sweeps the Bridegroom’s way, Strong in a cheerful trust that never fails. 43 Jonathan Reinarz Besides her old age, the poem once again reinforces the house visitor’s association with religion and moral guidance, though still emphasising her role as patient activist.
