"I know the hard times you've been through,"
Said Pen, and kissed them both,
"But nothing now need worry you
For here your life begins anew—"
("Hurray!" fat Horace quoth),
"—And when we seek the country air
I'm sure we'll find adventures there."

And Pen proved quite a prophetess
For, shortly after that,
They met a lovely—well, what?—guess!
What dream of perfect loveliness
D'you think I'm hinting at?
Well, if your Dad is pleased with you,
Perhaps he'll buy you that book[1] too.
