Poems My Grandmother Taught Me

Miss Sassafras Tea

Once I knew a little girl
Who had dolls aplenty,
And she loved them everyone.
But she had so many
She couldn’t think of names enough
For all of them, until
She started calling them such things
As Lettuce and Mackerel.
And one she christened Pumpkin Pie,
Another was Tomato,
Miss Endive, Carrot, and Mayonnaise,
A fat one was Potato.
That was kind of funny,
Don’t you agree?
She even named one dolly
Miss Sassafras Tea!
