Christening Bonnet Poem

I am a little bonnet
As you can plainly see.
But could you guess a handkerchief
Is what I used to be?

Wear me home from the hospital
And again on Christening Day.
Then safely keep me tucked away
Until your Wedding Day.

For good fortune all brides
Must wear something old
So just clip a couple of stitches
And a wedding hanky will unfold.

If perhaps it is a boy
On the day is to wed
Won't his bride be proud to use
The bonnet worn upon his head.
