We Are Seven
I met a little cottage girl,
She was eight years old, she said.
Her hair was thick with many a curl
That clustered round her head.
‘Sisters and brothers, little maid,
How many may you be?’
‘How many? Seven in all,’ she said,
And, wondering, looked at me.
‘And where are they, I pray you tell.’
She answered, ‘Seven are we,
And two of us at Conway dwell,
And two are gone to sea.’
‘Two of us in the churchyard lie,
My sister and my brother,
And, in the churchyard cottage, I
Dwell near them with my mother.’
