  • I’ve brung you my three babes, that lost their Maw a year ago.
    Folks claim you are right women, larnd, and fitten for to know
    What’s best for babes, and how to raise ’em into Christian men..
    I’ve growed afeared to leave ’em lest the house ketch fire again.
    For though I counsel ’em a sight each time I ride to town,
    Little chaps get so sleepy-headed when the dark comes down!

    - Ann Cobb, 'The Widow-Man'.
