Seamstress, Oh Seamstress

Seamstress, Oh Seamstress

A Poem by Debbie Barry
"

A new nursery rhyme, which flitted through my mind in the pre-dawn hours.

"

Seamstress, Oh Seamstress

 

Seamstress, oh seamstress,

Pray, sew me a gown;

I’ll be presented

Down in London Twow!

 

Seamstress, oh seamstress,

Pray, let it be green;

I’ll look my finest,

When I meet the Queen!

 

Seamstress, oh seamstress,

Do trim it with fur;

I must look pretty

To curtsey  to her!

 

Seamstress, oh seamstress,

Pray, make the skirt fine;

The prince will be there,

And I’ll make him mine!
