Beatrix Potter
Buckle that swatch, I will wear it.
I believe I will fashion a broach
And a fine shawl, perhaps a cape,
And a sweet hat, topped with fruit.
I will wear it on my trip to the coast,
It will shield me from wind, rain and sun.
In versatility is born frequent toilet visits
That allow me to wash my hands of filth.
I will create a vast castle of sand
And invite the creatures of the forest to reside.
A grand and stately home for all the visit
And not a penny wasted on heating.

Beatrix Potter, English author and illustrator, was born today in 1866.

Cyrano de Bergerac, French writer, playwright and duellist, died on this day in 1655.
