M. M. D.

Lover of little ones
Up to the end,
Everywhere children now
Mourn for their friend.

Age could not conquer her,
Youth ne’er forsook;
Child among children, she
Laughed heart and book.

Long on the Lonely Road
She ’ll never roam;
Hundreds of children will
Welcome her home!
Josephine Daskam Bacon.

August 24, 1905.
