Poem by James Whitcomb Riley


Granny


Grannys come to our house,
    And ho! my lawzy-daisy!
All the childern round the place
    Is ist a-runnin crazy!
Fetched a cake fer little Jake,
    And fetched a pie fer Nanny,
And fetched a pear fer all the pack
    That runs to kiss their Granny!

Lucy Ellens in her lap,
    And Wade and Silas Walker
Boths a-ridin on her foot,
    And Pollos on the rocker;
And Marthys twins, from Aunt Marinns,
    And little Orphant Annie,
Alls a-eatin gingerbread
    And giggle-un at Granny!

Tells us all the fairy tales
    Ever thought er wundered
And bundance o other stories
    Bet she knows a hunderd!
Bobs the one fer Whittington,
    And "Golden Locks" fer Fanny!
Hear em laugh and clap their hands,
    Listenin at Granny!

Jack the Giant-Killer s good;
    And Bean-Stalk s another!
Sos the one of Cinderell
    And her old godmother;
That-uns best of all the rest
    Bestest one of any,
Where the mices scampers home
    Like we runs to Granny!

Grannys come to our house,
    Ho! my lawzy-daisy!
All the childern round the place
    Is ist a-runnin crazy!
Fetched a cake fer little Jake,
    And fetched a pie fer Nanny,
And fetched a pear fer all the pack
    That runs to kiss their Granny!
