Church Belles

The Toledo Weekly Blade

Toledo, Ohio

April 1, 1869

No author is noted.

Coming in couples,
Smiling to sweetly,
Up the long aisle,
Tripping so neatly.

Envying bonnets -
Surveying laces,
Nodding at neighbors,
Peering in faces.

Whispering softly,
Heeding no sermon;
What they go there for
Hard to determine.

On all around them
Gazing benignly,
Wholly unconscious,
Singing divinely.

Proxy discoursing,
Don't suit their whims;
Plain they assemble
Just for the "hims."
