186              NEGRO DIALECT VERSES
In her goto-meetin' clo'se
'Deed she is a posie, As evah niggah knows,
My pansie, posie, Rosie,-In her go-to-meetin' clo'se.
I goes wid her to meetin'
Evah Sunday mawnin', sho', Fur dey ain' no other niggah
Nomernated fur her beau; Dey knows of my dejections,
An' dey stan's erlong in rows, Mighty 'spectful to dat lady,
In her go-to-meetin' clo'se.
I would kyarve a coon in slices,
An' jes' feed him to de crows, Ef I evah cotch him winkin'
At mer brown manila Rose, An' dey ain' no niggah livin',
In de house, er outen do's, 'Ceptin' dis, dat's gwine to swing her,
In her go-to-meetin' clo'se.
