If No One Ever Marries Me

If No one Ever Marries Me by Laurence Alma-Tadema

If no one ever marries me-
and I don’t see why they should;
for nurse says I’m not pretty,
and I’m seldom very good-

If no one ever marries me
I shan’t mind very much;
I shall buy a squirrel in a cage,
and a little rabbit hutch.

I shall have a cottage near a wood,
and a pony all my own.
And a little lamb quite clean and tame
that I can take to town.

And when I’m getting really old,
At twenty-eight or nine,
I shall buy a little orphan girl
And bring her up as mine.
