Poem by John F. Brand — One Thing More Beautiful

The little girl hated her freckles,
Of which she had quite a few,
And when someone would tease her
She didn’t know what to do.

Grandma said, “They’re beautiful!
I wanted some when I was small.
Now name me one thing that’s prettier,
Just name one thing, that’s all.”

The little girl quickly dried her tears,
And looking up into Grandma’s face,
She said just one word ---- “Wrinkles”
And a smile did her tears replace.
