Nine weeks in a nursing home—
Such has been my lot,
All foul fiends sent cursing home
By the wizard Scott.

Ne'er a detrimental night,
Ne'er a dismal day
But Romance's gentle Knight
Cleared the clouds away.

Would you all the braver lie,
Hale in heart and head?
Call the tribe of Waverley,
Sick man, to your bed.

Introspection's succubi
Instantly disperse;
While the modern muck you buy
Would but make them worse.

To Sir Walter's skill owes lip
More than lip can tell;
Nightly 'neath your pillowslip
Keep him and sleep well.
