Poetry of Kansas

To "Little Omega."

Elizabeth Miller.
Fair Omega knocked for room,
In the month when roses bloom;
Asking for a little part
Of our cottage and our heart.
Offering in return for this
Sunshines happiness and bliss.
Then we opened door and hearts
Asked of her to take a part;
Thinking one so young and fair,
Could be trusted anywhere.
But, alas, the little elf,
Wanted everything herself.
Though she asked for but a part
She has stolen every heart.
