Aunt Emmeline

She's aunt to nearly half the town;

It keeps her busy making brown

And crusty doughnutsócookies too.

She never says how many you

May safely eat; they're on the shelf,

You simply go and help yourself!

Her kitchen's warm with baking pies,

Her pantry sweet with jam and spice,

And she herself is plump and wise

With kindliness behind her eyes

And wrinkles all about. I go

To see her every day or so.
