The Height of the Ridiculous Analysis



Author: Poetry of Oliver Wendell Holmes Type: Poetry Views: 194

I WROTE some lines once on a time

In wondrous merry mood,

And thought, as usual, men would say

They were exceeding good.



They were so queer, so very queer,

I laughed as I would die;

Albeit, in the general way,

A sober man am I.



I called my servant, and he came;

How kind it was of him

To mind a slender man like me,

He of the mighty limb.



"These to the printer," I exclaimed,

And, in my humorous way,

I added, (as a trifling jest,)

"There'll be the devil to pay."



He took the paper, and I watched,

And saw him peep within;

At the first line he read, his face

Was all upon the grin.



He read the next; the grin grew broad,

And shot from ear to ear;

He read the third; a chuckling noise

I now began to hear.



The fourth; he broke into a roar;

The fifth; his waistband split;

The sixth; he burst five buttons off,

And tumbled in a fit.



Ten days and nights, with sleepless eye,

I watched that wretched man,

And since, I never dare to write

As funny as I can.
