A Young Wife and Mother
by Mary-Ellen B. Kelleher

Did she sit
and did she sit
and did she sit 
and spin?

And did she weave
and sew for you
to cover 
your bare skin?

And did she boil 
the kettle
and stew the 
spuds and meat?

And did she give 
you bairns* Asthore**
all toddling 
at your feet?

And did she teach 
those young ones
to love and praise
the Lord?

And did she keep 
a tidy home, 
all neat and clean 
and warm?

And did she plant 
those roses that 
creep 'round 
your cottage door?

And when you laid
her in the ground,
did you wish 
you'd loved her more?

*bairns=children
**Asthore=treasure/dear
