Portrait of a Girl     by: Dalziel, Ailsa

Source: Bright Eyes – Sir John Everett Millais

Bonnie portrait o a wee quine,
Oh how she stares,
Reid like roses were her chikks,
Tryin tae smile but canna,
Roon locks in her hair,
Auburn, short, bonnie hair,
In her een there were sparkles like glitter,
Tears waitin tae drap frae her een.

Oh no! My chikks are sair,
Cos ma mammy pinched them.
Feelin lonely inside,
Grinnin, almost smilin,
In the hoose she shivers,
Roon and roon the room she looks,
Lookin for her cheena doll.
