The Sewing Circle

by Evander A. Crewson

Sewing, sewing, busy sewing;
Hear the scissors rattle, rattle;
Everybody's tongue agoing—
Tittle-tattle, tittle-tattle.

Good intentions, glorious cause—
Willing angels in life's battle;
Picking out the little flaws—
Tittle-tattle, tittle-tattle.

Making some poor mother clothes;
Helping buy the baby's rattle;
Hitting friends and hitting foes—
Tittle-tattle, tittle-tattle.

Willing hearts and willing hands:
Generals all in life's battle;
Laying bare each other's plans—
Tittle-tattle, tittle-tattle.
