Dorothy D

I'm sick of "musn'ts," said Dorothy D
Sick of musn'ts, as I can be
From early dawn till the close of dayI hear a musn't, and never a may
It's "you musn't lie there like a sleepy head,"And "you musn't sit up ...

Will

There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, Can circumvent or hinder or control The firm resolve of a determined soul
Gifts count for nothing; will alone is great;
All things give way before it, soon or late
What obstacle can stay the ...

Life

An infant wailing in nameless fear;
A shadow, perchance, in the quiet room,
Or the hum of an insect flying near,
Or the screech-owl's cry, in the outer gloom

My Ships

If all the ships I have at sea Should come a-sailing home to me,
From sunny lands, and lands of cold,
Ah well
the harbor could not hold So many sails as there would be If all my ships came in from sea

This little toe is hungry—This little toe is too,
This toe lies abed like a sleepy head,
And this toe cries "Boo-hoo
"This toe big and tall is the smartest of

Only A Sad Mistake

Only a blunder—a sad mistake;
All my own fault and mine alone
The saddest error a heart can make;
I was so young, or I would have known

The Poor Little Toe

I am all tired out, said the mouth, with a pout,
I am all tired out with talk
Just wait, said the knee, till you're lame as you can be—And then have to walk—walk—walk

In Grandmammas Kitchen

In grandmamma's kitchen, things got in a riot—The cream in a pot on the shelf,
Where everything always seemed peaceful and quiet,

Peek-A-Boo

The cunningest thing that a baby can
Is the very first time it plays peek-a-boo;
When it hides its pink little face in its hands,

Babys First Journey

Lightly they hold him and lightly they sway him—Soft as a pillow are somebody's arms
Down he goes slowly, ever so
Over the rim of the cradle they lay him—Baby's first journey is free from alarms
