Dear Sisters

Dear Sisters

Dotty Attie. Dear Sisters, 1998.

Description:
Text reads: He gave her the egg and the key and went on his journey / She first carefully put the egg away / Then she looked all around the house and finally went into the forbidden room / Ah, what did she see! / There in the basin lay her two dear sisters, miserably murdered and hacked into pieces. / But she set to work and gathered together all the parts / Then she laid them in the right order: head and body, arms and legs / When there was nothing missing the limbs began to stir / The two girls opened there eyes and were alive again, and they all kissed and hugged one another and lived happily for ever after.
