ONE WAY OF DRESSING A WIFE.
I wrote a poem to Lily's eyes
That's now my wife's fall hat;
Another one to Cora's smile
A dress she made of that.
My wife is named Maria Ann
I'm fond of her, O, yes!
But can't turn out a verse to her
That's suitable for dress.
Now, as she has a need for clothes, '
For stockings, hats and shoe
She quite agreed with me that there
Is not much time to los;
So down I sit and write all day
To Maud's and Fanny's curls;
And that's the way I dress my wife
