I love this poem by by John Vance Cheney. Hope you will love my sharing too.
Knitting is the maid o' the kitchen, Milly,
Doing nothing sits the chore boy, Billy:
Sixty in it.
Knockety-nick, nickety-knock, '-
Goes the kitchen clock.
Closer to the fire is rosy Milly,
Every whit as close and cosy, Billy:
Worth your trying;
Kiss her, Billy!
