Poems


Of a Girl Running in High-heeled Shoes

 
Of funny girls he sings,
      Who paint their lovely faces;
Wear curious jewels and rings,
      With such strange airs and graces;
Whose blouses house the oddest things
      In very funny places.

Yes, girls are very odd -
      Especially when they run;
The oddness of their bodies makes
      Their buttons come undone.
If they were made by God, by God,
      God had a sense of fun.
