TWO LITTLE CHILDREN
Two little children a girl and a boy
Sat down by an old church door
The little girls feet were as brown
As the curls that fell on the dress that she wore.
The boy's coat was raged and hatlees his head
A tear shone in each little eye
Why don't you run home to your mama I cryed
And this was the saden reply.
Mama's in heaven they took her away Left Jim and I alone
We come here to sleep at the close of the day For we have no mama nor home.
We can't earn our bread for we're little she said Jim's 5 years and I'm only seven We have no one to love us sence papa is dead
And our darling mama's in heaven.
Papa was lost out at sea long age We waited all night on the shore For he was a life saving captain you know
But he never came back anymore.
Then mama got sick angles took her away
She said to a home warm and bright
She said they would come for her darling sometime
Perhaps they are coming to night.
Perhaps ther's no room up in heaven she said For two little darlings to keep Then placing her arm under little Jim's head She kissed him and both fell asleep.
The section came early to ring the church bell He found them beneath the snow white The angles made room for two little darlings To dwell in heaven with mama that night.
