  OVER THE WAY  

Over the way, over the way,
I've seen a head that's fair and gray;
I've seen kind eyes not new to tears,
A form of grace, though full of years--
    Her fifty summers have left no flaw--
And I, a youth of twenty-three,
So love this lady, fair to see,
    I want her for my mother-in-law!

Over the way, over the way,
I've seen her with the children play;
I've seen her with a royal grace
Before the mirror adjust her lace;
    A kinder woman none ever saw;
God bless and cheer her onward path,
And bless all treasures that she hath,
    And let her be my mother-in-law!

Over the way, over the way,
I think I'll venture, dear, some day
(If you will lend a helping hand,
And sanctify the scheme I've planned);
    I'll kneel in loving, reverent awe
Down at the lady's feet, and say:
"I've loved your daughter many a day--
    Please won't you be my mother-in-law?"

                                         Mary Mapes Dodge.
