Category: Funny Burlesque Poems
       Classic humorous and funny poems using comic imitation and exaggeration in an absurd way.


We love thee, Ann Maria Smith,
    And in thy condescension
We see a future full of joys
    Too numerous to mention.

There's Cupid's arrow in thy glance,
    That by thy love's coercion
Has reached our melting heart of hearts,
    And asked for one insertion.

With joy we feel the blissful smart;
    And ere our passion ranges,
We freely place thy love upon
    The list of our exchanges.

There's music in thy lowest tone,
    And silver in thy laughter:
And truth--but we will give the full
    Particulars hereafter.

Oh, we could tell thee of our plans
    All obstacles to scatter;
But we are full just now, and have
    A press of other matter.

Then let us marry, Queen of Smiths,
    Without more hesitation:
The very thought doth give our blood
    A larger circulation.

                                 Robert H. Newell.
