Memories of the Outhouse

Woman reflects on the coziness of the outhouse.

| Good Old Days

Here is a gift most practical, it's true;

The pages are soft, we sometimes use two. We know you'll find it most useful indeed, Not only for softness, but interesting to read.

As the pages are torn in the backward direction,

You'll find by fall, it is the harness section. That little house, you've often heard us say, Is very cozy, and far out of the way.

As you sit there alone, Quietly bowing your head The book will please you As the pages are read.

Now sitting on the seat so comfy, though cold; would be very well, if you'd not be too bold.
