John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7519
AUTHOR:Phoebe Cary (1824–1871)
QUOTATION:Her washing ended with the day,
  Yet lived she at its close,
And passed the long, long night away
  In darning ragged hose.


But when the sun in all its state
  Illumed the Eastern skies,
She passed about the kitchen grate
  And went to making pies.
ATTRIBUTION:The Wife. 1
