MY SINS AND I, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: I took my little secret sins
Last Line: And they are with me still!
I TOOK my little secret sins
Down to the creek to drown,
Five cunning ones of black and white
And two of shining brown.
I set them down in one long row
And bade them meditate
Upon their foolish wicked ways
That led them to this fate.
They looked at me so wistfully
And promised to be good,
I yielded to their pleading eyes
And hid them in the wood.
But when I had reached home again,
There perched upon my sill
Were all those naughty sins of mine,
And they are with me still!
