First Line: There! You shed a ray
Last Line: Your father's autograph.

THERE! You shed a ray
of whimsicality on a mask of profundity so
terrific, that I have been dumbfounded by
it oftener than I care to say.

legibility and are sufficiently
synthetic. Thank you for showing me
your father's autograph.
