THE ETERNAL TRIANGLE, by

Two robins on the lawn;
One was singing a lover's song.
The Lady Robin was shy and trim,
And kept a proper distance from him.

He walked toward her, with song so sweet
It would take any damsel off her feet.
She listened demurely, with head on one side
As though the great question she would decide.

Just then, down from the blue
A very dapper robin flew.
He took his place beside the maid
And she never acted a bit afraid.

The first robin kept singing the sweetest song,
And all the time was walking along.
He reached her; she must have had a streak of yellow,
For she flew away with the other fellow.
