SOLUTION OF THE CHARADE IN THE MUSEUM FOR OCTOBER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Let me see: in a list of the spirits of evil
Last Line: And in future from riddling refrain.
Alternate Author Name(s): Aikin, Anna Letitia


Let me see: -- in a list of the spirits of evil,
What names should we happen to find;
Hobgoblin, and demon, ghost, sprite, fiend, and devil,
And a little imp ling'ring behind.

What a terrible set to form a community,
Did reason not scout such a thought;
We laugh at these dreams, while living in unity,
With peace, joy, and innocence, fraught.

Thus I've guess'd at the meaning of Lacey's Charade,
And impunity hope I may gain;
If not, I must look for some better man's aid,
And in future from riddling refrain.
