THE INKY MOUTH, by            
First Line: O strange and lovely sight
Last Line: Upon a night obscure.

O strange and lovely sight:
A smudge of ink, all staining
A luscious mouth containing
The wine of sweet delight:

Like pitch, a flask of pure
And sparkling liquor lining,
With the moon's crescent shining
Upon a night obscure.
