Poetry of Kansas

My Little Sister.

My little sister had everthing.
    Everything in the world__
Blue eyes, dimples, pink cheeks,
    And her hair curled.
She played forward at basketball,
    And shot ducks from cover.
She had a sweet rose colored hat,
  And a tall lover.
All her life she had everything,
  Plenty and more than plenty,
She did not need a perfect death__
  Death at twenty.
__May Willams Ward.
