A Child's Own Book of Verse, Book One by  Ada M. Skinner and Frances Gillespy Wickes


 

 

WILL YOU BE MY LITTLE WIFE?

Will you be my little wife,

If I ask you? Do!

I'll buy you such a Sunday frock,

A nice umbrella, too.


And you shall have a little hat,

With such a long white feather,

A pair of gloves, and sandal shoes,

The softest kind of leather.


And you shall have a tiny house,

A beehive full of bees,

A little cow, a largish cat

And green sage cheese.

—KATE GREENAWAY.
