Dame Mary Gilmore Poems

Marri'd by Dame Mary Gilmore
IT’S singin’ in an’ out,
An’ feelin’ full of grace;
Here ’n’ there, up an’ down,
An’ round about th’ place.

It’s rollin’ up your sleeves,
An’ whit’nin’ up the hearth,
An’ scrubbin’ out th’ floors,
An’ sweepin’ down th’ path;

It’s bakin’ tarts an’ pies,
An’ shinin’ up th’ knives;
An’ feelin’ ’s if some days
Was worth a thousand lives.

It’s watchin’ out th’ door,
An’ watchin’ by th’ gate;
An’ watchin’ down th’ road,
An’ wonderin’ why he’s late;

An’ feelin’ anxious-like,
For fear there’s something wrong;
An’ wonderin’ why he’s kep’,
An’ why he takes so long.

It’s comin’ back inside
An’ sittin’ down a spell,
To sort of make believe
You’re thinkin’ things is well.

It’s gettin’ up again
An’ wand’rin’ in an’ out;
An’ feelin’ wistful-like,
Not knowin’ what about;

An’ flushin’ all at once,
An’ smilin’ just so sweet,
An’ feelin’ real proud
The place is fresh an’ neat.

An’ feelin’ awful glad
Like them that watch’d Silo’m;
An’ everything because
A man is comin’ Home!
