Three Little Emigrants

by Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt
A Romance Of Cork Harbour, 1884

The soldier’s coat was English-red,
And Irish-red was Katy’s cheek:
“But he’s a handsome boy,” she said,
“And it’s to-night he means to speak.

“Who’s English-born is not to blame
For that! (He would become the green.)
Sure, but it is a burning shame
To think he will stand by the Queen.

“He and Sir Garnet, side-by-side,
Fought beautifully, though, out there, –
Faith! he’s splendid scar to hide
With all that elegant black hair!”

Or better yet, take two.
For you’ll find that you’ll be hungry,
Morning, noon and night,
And you’ll soon have what the people
Call a Klondike appetite.
