Madrigal by Lewis Carroll
(To Miss May Forshall.)
HE shouts amain, he shouts again,
(Her brother, fierce, as bluff King Hal),
'I tell you flat, I shall do that!'
She softly whispers ' 'May' for 'shall'!'
He wistful sighed one eventide
(Her friend, that made this Madrigal),
'And shall I kiss you, pretty Miss!'
Smiling she answered ' 'May' for 'shall'!'
With eager eyes my reader cries,
'Your friend must be indeed a val-
-uable child, so sweet, so mild!
What do you call her?' 'May For shall.'
