Subject(s): Wellesley College


I MADE my house quite clean today,
I thought that you might pass this way.

I killed the little flying things,
The miller moths with dusty wings, --
You would not like their flutterings.

I made the house all clean and sweet,
Swept out the tracks of dusty feet,
And then I gathered holly-hocks
And filled a bowl with lady-smocks;
I put them there to catch your eye,
And then -- I saw you passing by.
