Little Orphant Annie's come to our house to stay, An' wash the cups an' saucers up, an' brush the crumbs away . Riley began his career writing verses as a sign maker and submitting poetry to newspapers. Thanks in part to an endorsement from poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, he eventually earned successive jobs at Indiana newspaper publishers during the latter 1870s. Riley gradually rose in prominence during the 1880s through his poetry reading tours. He traveled a touring circuit first in the Midwest, and then nationally, holding shows and making joint appearances on stage with other famous talents.
Little Orphant Annie" is an 1885 poem written by James Whitcomb Riley and published by the Bowen-Merrill Company.

Known as the "Hoosier poet", Riley wrote the rhymes in nineteenth-century Hoosier dialect. As one of his most well known poems, it served as the inspiration for the character Little Orphan Annie upon whom was based a comic strip, plays, radio programs,.

James Whitcomb Riley. These pictures show 'Annie' dressed only slightly less fashionably than the children of the house and she sleeps in a real bed, though not on the bedroom floor of the house with the family. She's just enough older than the other children that she can thrill and horrify them with her stories about what happens to bad children.
Little Orphant Annie's come to our house to stay, An' wash the cups an' saucers up, an' brush the crumbs away, An' shoo the chickens off the porch, an' dust the hearth, an' sweep, An' make the fire, an' bake the bread, an' earn her board-an-keep; An' all us other childern, when the supper-things is done, We set around . Annie would give us a sip of cider from a brown jug, which she said was witch's sleeping potion. She'd herd us children to our beds, then, tuck us in, kiss us g'night. She'd go back to the kitchen to put a backlog on the fire to last until morning.
37 An' little Orphant Annie says, when the blaze is blue, 38 An' the lamp-wick sputters, an' the wind goes woo-oo! 39 An' you hear the crickets quit, an' the moon is gray, 40 An' the lightnin'-bugs in dew is all squenched away, - 41 You better mind yer parunts, an' yer teachurs fond an' dear, 42 An' churish them 'at loves you, an' dry the orphant's tear, 43 An' he'p the pore an' needy ones 'at clusters.
