SISTER SUSIE:
Sister Susie's in the kitchen sewing on a
Singer,
There's miles and miles of rlaruVl on the
lloor and on the stairs,
And father says it's rotten getting mixed
up with the cotton,
And sitting on the needles that she leaves
upon tlie chairs.
When you knock at our dont door,   Ma
whispers. " Come inside."
! And when you ask where Susie is, site
says with loving pride.
"Sister Susies in the kitchen sewing shirts
for soldiers,
Such skill  at sewing our skillful Susie
shows.
The   soldiers  send epistles, say they'd
sooner sleep in thistles,
Than   the   saucy, soft short shirts for
soldiers Sister Susie sews."
