TO HATTIE - ON HER BIRTHDAY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When your 'uncle jim' was

WHEN your "Uncle Jim" was younger,
In the days of childish hunger
For the honey of such verses
As this little book rehearses
In such sweet simplicity, --
Just the simple gift that this is
Would have brimmed his heart with blisses
Sweet as Hattie's sweetest kisses,
On her anniversary.
