Green Orphan

Green grass, spring at the stable
I will help you if I am able
Just as green as the spring hills
Are my fledgling working skills
Orphaned girl working hard
I'll gladly fork hay in the yard
I know you need a child strong as a horse
But a willing little girl is not much worse
You are not young but while you are strong
I want to learn to help you both along
I don't want to be all alone
To cultivate a heart of stone
My mind is giddy, running wild
A highly imaginative child
You have the power to tame me
But please don't ridicule or shame me
And perhaps one day when you are weak
I will help you manage things when I am at my peak
