The Enchanted Castle

To Margaret Ostler with love from E. Nesbit
Peggy, you came from the heath and moor, And you brought their airs
through my open door; You brought the blossom of youth to blow In the
Latin Quarter of Soho. For the sake of that magic I send you here A tale
of enchantments, Peggy dear, A bit of my work, and a bit of my heartÉ
The bit that you left when we had to part.
Royalty Chambers, Soho, W. 25 September 1907
