Little Jenny

by Mary Mapes Dodge

Little Jenny fetching spring water

Little Jenny with a pail
Tripping to the spring;
Little Jack astride a rail
Laughed to hear her sing.

Little Jenny softly said,
I'm tired as I can be.
But Jack was sure that the little maid
Said, Carry my pail for me.

Little Jacks water delivery
