PHILOPOENA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Anneke thought it royal fun
Last Line: My lips shall claim the penance.


ANNEKE thought it royal fun
The pretty game I taught her,
And ere my lesson quite was done
With "yes or no" I caught her.

Bright spirit, in whose glances sweet
Dwell joy and wit as tenants,
With "give or take" when next we meet
My lips shall claim the penance.
