                                           Two Little Pairs…              by Mrs. Susan Teall Perry

                                            Two little pairs of boots, to-night,
                                            Before the fire are drying;
                                                                                       Shelley McVittie’s
                                            Two little pairs of tired feet                       Gallery
                                            In a trundle bed are lying;
                                            The tracks they left upon the floor                   Opens
                                            Make me feel like sighing.
                                                                                             March 15th

Those little boots with copper toes!        They walk about the new plowed ground
                                                                                                 For the
They run the livelong day;                  Where mud in plenty lies;                                 2003
And oftentimes I almost wish                They roll it up in marbles round,
They were miles away;                       They bake it into pies,                             Season!
So tired am I to hear so oft                And then, at night upon the floor,
Their heavy tramp at play.                  In every shape it dries!

                     (4)                                       (5)
To-day I was disposed to scold,             For in a trunk up stairs I’ve laid
But when I look to-night                    Two socks of white and blue’
At those little boots before the fire,      If called to put those boots away,
With copper toes so bright,                 Oh God, what should I do?
I think how sad my heart would be           I mourn that there are not to-night
To put them out of sight.                   Three pairs instead of two.

                     (6)                                       (7)
I mourn because I thought how nice          We mothers weary get, and worn,
My neighbour ‘cross the way,                Over our load of care;
Could keep her carpets all the year         But how we speak to these little ones
From getting worn and gray;                 Let each of us beware;                         Gallery opened daily
Yet well I know she’d smile to own          For what would our fireside be to-night,
                                                                                             Monday —Sunday
Some little boots to-day.                   If no little boots were there?
