My Self, by Rosalind


My name is Rosalind

I am seven years old

I am fair in complexion

I am about two fit tall

the food I like is fried rice and chicken

the game I like best is ludy

When I wake up in the morning I bath

and I brush my teeth

When I finished bathing I scrub my self and

I well [wear] my dress and

I go out and Play
