THE PEN, by            
First Line: Fairer is the manuscript
Last Line: Through the wick's deficiency.


Fairer is the manuscript
When the reed is clipped;
Clearer runs the message, when
There's a trimming of the pen.

Dimly burns the lantern; but
When its wick is cut
Perfect will its lustre be
Through the wick's deficiency.
