THE SPROUTING BOARD, by            
First Line: Your cheeks were oh how fair
Last Line: Reveals its wick is black.


Your cheeks were oh how fair,
How full of glowing grace
Until that sprouted there,
Your beauty to deface.

And then your cheeks became
A candle that, alack
Extinguishing its flame,
Reveals its wick is black.
