Euphemia

EUPHEMIA

Euphemia lived in Iowa State
From twenty six to ninety nine
She weighed ninety pounds and a penny weight
The gay ninety’s was her time

She met and loved and lived and died
In the country where she was born
Reared seven children with motherly pride
Along with gardens of squash and corn

In the year of ninety nine
Euphemia was seventy three
She knew from instinct it was time
To leave her worldly spree

She had done all she could do
She gave all that she could give
She was in her life tried and true
She was always ready to forgive
