Ragwife
J K Annand

 Click here to listen to this in Real Audio read by Caitlin Wallace (aged 9)

Onie rags the day, Mistress?
     Onie rags to gie?
An auld coat or a pair o breeks
     Or shune that's worn a wee?

I'll let ye hae a flouerin plant,
     A besom, or a toy:
A dolly for your little lass,
     Or trumpet for your boy.

Syne I'll step happy doun the brae
     To my next port o call,
My pack o rags upon my back,
     My bairnie in my shawl.
