Oh! All the excitement has ceased
A girl has been born againï¿½
The mother looks lovingly
at the infantï¿½s face
but the father is very angry.
The mother in law makes a face
while the sister in law talks wickedly,
How dare she produced a girl child again
when she has one silly daughter already!!
There is hush hush among the relatives,
no rejoicing among the family.
The neighbors donï¿½t come to visit,
At home all is quiet and sundry.
Only the new mother is happy,
her heart is full of musicï¿½
She knows she will be treated unkindly
but canï¿½t help feeling brightly.
