    'Twas After Our Wedding

    'Twas after our wedding I was left on my own
    To care for my children and build them a home,
    But who could I turn to? Who my children would mind?
    I had to find a neighbour both charitable and kind.
    I was at my wit's 'end with no where to go.
    Where could I leave them? Just where - I don't know!
    I wandered near and far to find a place of the best.
    Somewhere my young ones would find love, care and rest.
    And then, there I saw! The end of all my woe!
    I'd leave my first born there and then on I would go.
    I'd leave each offspring in a different type of home.
    They'd be well looked after and not on their own.
    You may think I've no heart to do the awful thing I do,
    But each Spring you will listen to hear our cry - Cuckoo! Cuckoo!
