SEE the dandy with his calls, -
What a world of happiness his charming card forestalls!
How they tickle, tickle, tickle,
All the ladies on-his list,
While the stars that oversprinkle
All the heavens seem to twinkle
At the thought of those he missed.
Keeping time, time, time,
In a sort of Runic rhyme,
To the striking of the clock, that so regularly falls,
To end those calls, calls, calls, calls,
Calls, calls, calls,
To end the flirting and the smirking of the calls.
See the tender youth's first calls, -
