But nevertheless, as sweet as I can, I'll sing a song to Elizabeth Ann - the same little Ann as there you see smiling as happy as happy can be.
And all that my song is meant to say is just what she did one long, long day, with her own little self to play with only, yet never once felt the least bit lonely.
A child's day written by Walter de la mare with photographic illustrations by Carine and Will Cadby. A poem all about Elizabeth Ann and what she does in a day.
Second edition published in September 1915 by Constable London.

A child's day is now sold, thank you for your interest.
My favourite Walter de la Mare poem is The Listeners
"Is there anybody there?" said the Traveller, knocking on the moonlit door; And his horse in the silence champed the grasses of the forest's ferny floor: And a bird flew up out of the turret, Above the Traveller's head and he smote upon the door again a second time; "Is there anybody there?" he said.
