Jane - Poem by Francis Duggan

I've seen pretty girls but none quite so fair
As Jane with brown eyes and shoulder length brown hair
The prettiest young woman in our side of the town
Yet she never does daydream of wealth and renown
And she does not wish to be a wealthy man's wife
She just wants to travel and enjoy her life
Since she has just turned eighteen six years from her prime
She feels for marriage and love and having children she has lots of time
She wants to see some of the big World out there
And learn how people live their lives elsewhere
The girl who does make new friends every day
About her she has such a beautiful way
Despite her great beauty one free of conceit
As nice a person as one would wish to meet.
