Then Wear the Gold Hat -- Thomas Parke D'Invilliers

Guest poem submitted by Will Chiong:
(Poem #1476) Then Wear the Gold Hat
 Then wear the gold hat, if that will move her;
        if you can bounce high, bounce for her too,
 Till she cry "Lover, gold-hatted, high-bouncing lover,
        I must have you!"
-- Thomas Parke D'Invilliers
I remember being moved by this poem a long time ago, and it has a
strange backstory, so I was hoping you could include it in your archive.
This poem is presented as the dedication in the intro pages of
Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby".  The 'joke' is that D'Invilliers is a
fictional character in Fitzgerald's first novel, "This Side of
Paradise".

I love this poem, though, as it is seems like a whimsical addition to
Fitzgerald's masterpiece; but really sums up one of the book's most
intriguing themes quite well.

A great biography of Fitzgerald can be found at

Thanks for posting this great quotation. Rightly or wrongly, it was introduced to me many years ago with a different wording that I found even more beautiful and memorable all this time:

"Then wear the gold hat if that [please] her, and if you can bounce high, bounce high for her too; 'til she cry: 'Lover! Gold-hatted, high-bouncing lover! I must have you!"

Levels of debt are higher within London than anywhere else in the country. Debt has a huge impact on many people’s lives and can affect us in ways that we would not initially expect. Debt can cause mental health problems, problems for our families and friends as well as making it difficult to work

Thomas Parke D'Invilliers—one of Blaine's close friends (also the fictitious author of the poem at the start of The Great Gatsby) was based on Fitzgerald's friend and classmate, the poet John Peale Bishop.at Princeton, who recieved the Manner's golden tiger prize in 1918..
