Rhymes of a RoughneckThe lady at the corner wicket

Sold me a stamp, I stooped to lick it,

And on the envelope to stick it;

A spinster lacking girlish grace,

Yet sweetly sensitive, her face

Seemed to en-star that stodgy place.Said I: "I've come from o'er the sea

To ask you if you'll marry me -

That is to say, if you are free.

I see your gentle features freeze;

'I do not like such jokes as these,'

From oriental ports to ply . . .

Ten years went past of foreign sky.But always in the starry night

I steered my course with you in sight,

My dream of you a beacon light.

Then after a decade had sped

I cam again: 'What luck? I said,

'Will she be here and free to wed?'Oh it was on a morn of Spring,

And I had in my purse a ring

I bought in Eastern voyaging,

With thought of you and only you;

For I to my love dream was true . . .

And here you were, your eyes of blue.The same sun shining on your brow

Lustered you hair as it does now,

My heart was standing still, I vow.

I bought a stamp, my eyes were bent

Upon a ring you
