Subject(s): Friendship; Peace; Reconciliation

A lady and a tiger held
The birthright of an ancient fued;
Said he, "Pray let our wrath be quelled;
Fair dame, I fear I've been too rude.

"In future peace let us abide;
In pledge, let's forth our friends to greet;
Behold my shining, fulvous hide;
You'll find my back a pleasant seat."

When they came back from that rash ride,
The tiger wore his blandest smile.
Quoth he, "The lady rides inside;
'Tis thus our foes we reconcile."

If Science offer subtle schemes,
My faith, be not too soon beguiled;
Strange friendships may be tempting dreams;
Beware the lady reconciled.
