My Little Girl

I have a little girl,
Jeannie is her name.
She hasn’t any curl,
But I love her just the same.

She’s only six years old,
For her age she is quite tall.
Her manners are quite bold,
But she’s really nice to all.

Some days she is a mother,
To her baby brother small.
I’m sure there is no other,
That could take her place at all.

- Maude Hutchinson, 1958
