The Irish baby magic bonnet includes the following poem:
The Magic Hanky
I’m a little hanky As beautiful as can be,
And with a stitch or two a bonnet has been made out of me.
I can be worn home from the hospital or on christening day,
And then I will be tucked away to await the wedding day.
On her Wedding Day, a hanky I will be,
For every bride needs something old and surely I will be.
And if so happens to be a boy,
and someday he should marry,
He can give his lovely bride a hanky she can carry.
