Poet of the Week: Mary Mapes Dodge

Here's a poet I just discovered over at Poetry Foundation, and I am quite charmed by her work!

Fire in the Window
Fire in the window! flashes in the pane!
Fire on the roof-top! blazing weather-vane!
Turn about, weather-vane! put the fire out!
The sun’s going down, sir, I haven’t a doubt. 
 Early to Bed
Early to bed and early to rise:
If that would make me wealthy and wise
I’d rise at daybreak, cold or hot,
And go back to bed at once. Why not?
