The Ballade Of The Automobile Analysis



Author: poem of Ellis Parker Butler Type: poem Views: 11

Sponsored Links



When our yacht sails seaward on steady keel

And the wind is moist with breath of brine

And our laughter tells of our perfect weal,

We may carol the praises of ruby wine;

But if, automobiling, my woes combine

And fuel gives out in my road-machine

And it's sixteen miles to that home of mine--

Then ho! For a gallon of gasoline!



When our coach rides smoothly on iron-shod wheel

With a deft touch guiding each taut drawn line

And the inn ahead holds a royal meal,

We may carol the praises of ruby wine;

But when, on some long and steep incline,

In a manner entirely unforeseen

The motor stops with a last sad whine--

Then ho! For a gallon of gasoline!



When the air is crisp and the brooks congeal

And our sleigh glides on with a speed divine

While the gay bells echo with peal on peal,

We may carol the praises of ruby wine;

But when, with perverseness most condign,

In the same harsh snowstorm, cold and keen,

My auto stops at the six-mile sign--

Then ho! For a gallon of gasoline!



ENVOY



When yacht or Coach Club fellows dine

We may carol the praises of ruby wine;

But when Automobile Clubmen convene

Then ho! For a gallon of gasoline!
