Rating: 3.0

Little brown baby wif spa'klin' eyes,
Come to yo' pappy an' set on his knee.

Look at dat bib -- you's es du'ty ez me.
Look at dat mouf -- dat's merlasses, I bet;
Come hyeah, Maria, an' wipe off his han's.
Bees gwine to ketch you an' eat you up yit,
Bein' so sticky an sweet -- goodness lan's!
Little brown baby wif spa'klin' eyes,
Who's pappy's darlin' an' who's pappy's chile?

Who is it all de day nevah once tries

I heard a reference of this from a preacher from NY. Every since then, it made me think of my nephew, Tyshawn. He was the complete description of this poem. Now I have grandchildren that still remind me of this poem.
