A Song of Sewing.
The following was written for the use of the children in the Sewing School who are under the supervision of Miss Matilda Brown and were recently overheard singing a W. C. T. U. song to the tune of "John Brown:"
(AIR JOHN BROWN)
We're a merry band of maidens and we love to come together, Sometimes the rain is falling, but we do not mind the weather; For we've the kindest teachers, and we often wonder whether Like them we'll learn to sew.
For we're sewing, sewing,
While the years are going,
With our teachers showing
Like them we'll learn to sew
We'll run the seam, and do the hem, and back stitch if we may. And when it comes to buttonholes be sure it is not play; But if we try to do them well our teachers kindly say "You're learning how to sew."
Then let us gather up our threads, and never leave a muss, And though the day be fine for play we'll work without a fuss: Oh! Don't you wish you could be girls and learn to sew with us! And learn with us to sew.
