To my Four Little Daughters

My four little daughters, so dear,
Thy names, in this album, I'll write,
My four little daughters so fair,
Instruction for thee I'll indite.

Missouri, mine eldest, give heed,
Unto the advice, Mynow give,
I'll sow in thine heart the best seed
Which, if ye'll but culture, will live

Mary Elizabeth, but thou art no more,
For thy maker hath call'd thee above,
Though it pained me, and made my heart sore,
Thou may act an angel of love.

Indiana, my third infant born,
Remember thy parents advice
Gather roses, but touch not the thorns,
Nor let sinners, to sin, thee entice.

Matthew Ann, my fourth daughter and last,
Take heed to they ways, in thy youth,
Shun wit, as thou wouldst the foul blast,
Love, virtue, religion and truth.

My lovely, sweet daughters, so dear,
They names written here, when you see,
Resolve of all sin to beware,
Remember the instructions from me.
