Last Lines of Mary Mapes Dodge
All, in the picture, are plainly to be seen.And all their joy was turned to wailing!And thought her ten little toes were gone.But hold up your face, and we'll kiss you true.Bye, baby, bye!Come and play with Baby now.Dat's yight, Mamma -- dim me hug!Funny old St. Nicholas!God sees.He only lendeth.Hear Mollie scream!Holy Christmas bells!How each letter looks.How to live for Thee!In that thing very soon.It takes all kinds, sir, to make a world.Or so I've heard folk say.Roar, G-r-r-rooo! Go away!Said,
Carry my pail for me.Set you free at last.That he may come to me.The children flock, in his dreams, to him.The sun's going down, sir, I haven't a doubt.Tick, a-tick, a-tick, a-tick!Till the children awoke at break of day.Tillie is sick.We steadily keep mounting.What a pity!When my eyes are shut?" said I.With a cheer.With a pocket on each side.Won't you tell me what you found?You never need hope to see.
