Nannie Is A Bonnie Maid

Samuel Alfred Beadle

 Next Poem          

Nannie, she is dearer far
Than all the girls I know,
For when the cook deserts her ma
And swears she'll work no more,
She puts her latest music by
And bakes an apple pie.

Nannie is a bonnie maid,
There's none so neat and fair,
As she when dressed in Wesson plaid,
And banged her glossy hair,
With all her silken skirts put by,
While she serves the apple pie.
