Poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti


* * *


Ferry me across the water,
Do, boatman, do.
If you've a penny in your purse
I'll ferry you.
I have a penny in my purse,
And my eyes are blue;
So ferry me across the water,
Do, boatman, do.
Step into my ferry-boat,
Be they black or blue,
And for the penny in your purse
I'll ferry you.
