A village maiden stands. A maid as fair -as one could see In any promised land. She looks the whole world In the face Sha cares not—for any man. Her eyes are blue like skies above, Her cheeks are like a rose. Qolden locks wave in the breeze While in her beauty poise.; A quiet modest maid Is she, Cares not for fadlsh clothes. She goes on Sunday to the church In prayer she speaks a word. And when the organ's pealing forth Her sweet voice can bo heard, Singing in the village choir A voice like any bird. When morning comes a. task begins She's always up on time. Helping Mother wash the clothes, She hang's-'them on the line.' A working girl with commoa sense And very:hard to ttnd. . : i .. Her Father coming from the shop, The bellows cease to roar. anvil sound, is still again, sledge lay oh the floor. face and hands are blackened But she kissed him at the^ door. So my kind a.nd worthy friend, A good wife she has made. She is loved—by one and all, . The blacksmith's village maid. She retains her charms of youth As in the chestnut shades. JOHN C.
