A Child's Own Book of Verse II by  Ada M. Skinner


 

 

THE BABIE

Nae shoon to hide her tiny taes,

Nae stockings on her feet;

Her supple ankles white as snow,

Or early blossoms sweet.


Her simple dress of sprinkled pink

Her double, dimpled chin;

Her pucker'd lip and bonny mou',

With nae ane tooth between.


Her een sae like her mither's een,

Twa gentle, liquid things;

Her face is like an angel's face—

We're glad she has nae wings.

—HUGH MILLER.
