"Blueberry Time in Petersburgh" by Melancthon Fairchild (1919)

Blueberry Time in Petersburgh


Written for The Troy Times.

Lydia's slender waist or Chloe's flashing eyes,

Too oft, I will confess, are objects of my sighs;

But Maud, in beauty equal, I more highly prize,

Because she beats them both in making berry pies.

With Lydia I will glide in measures of the dance,

And look with fondest hope for Chloe's tender glance;

But when again at last the dinner hour arrived,

I think of dearest Maudie and her juicy pies.

Troy Times. August 9, 1919: 11 col 1.
