Poem Title:  Jeremi' And Josephin

Poem Category:  Children Poems

Poet:  Laura Elizabeth Richards

Laura Elizabeth Richards (1850-1943). Ironically , her mother was the poet Julia Ward Howe and is better known than her daughter as she is best known as the author of "Battle Hymn of the Republic".



Poem: 
As Jeremi' and Josephine
Were walky-talking on the green,
They met a man who bore a dish
Of (anything you like to wish!)

They stared to see the man so bold;
They really thought he must be cold,
For he was clad, though chill the day,
In (anything you choose to say!)

The man returned their stare again;
But now the story gives me pain,
For he remarked in scornful tone,
(I'll let you manage this alone!)

And there is even worse to come;
The man (I've been informed by some)
Inflicted on the blameless two
(I leave the punishment to you!)

This simple tale is thus, you see,
Divided fair 'twixt you and me,
And nothing more I've heard or seen
Of Jeremi' or Josephine.
