to wake up in the morning
 all alone
and not have to tell somebody
 you love them
when you don't love them
 any more.

The world is full of meat and drink, 
With little children saying grace 
In every Christian kind of place.

Sat among the cinders
    Warming her pretty little toes;
Her mother came and caught her,
Whipped her little daughter
    For spoiling her nice new clothes.

Over the fence

 Over the fence --
Strawberries -- grow --
Over the fence --
I could climb -- if I tried, I know --
Berries are nice!

But -- if I stained my Apron --
God would certainly scold!
Oh, dear, -- I guess if He were a Boy --
He'd -- climb -- if He could!


by Mother Goose

Dame Trot And Her Cat


Dame Trot and her cat
  Led a peaceable life,
When they were not troubled
  With other folks' strife.

When Dame had her dinner
  Pussy would wait,
And was sure to receive
  A nice piece from her plate.
