                            How do the daughters
                            Come down at Dunoon?
                            Starting and bolting,
                            And darting and jolting,
                            And tottering and staggering,
                            And lumbering and slithering,
                            And hurrying and scurrying,
                            And worrying and flurrying,
And rushing and leaping and crushing and creeping;
Feathers a-flying all--bonnets untying all--
Petticoats rapping and flapping and slapping all,
Crinolines flowing and blowing and showing all
Balmorals, dancing and glancing, entrancing all;
                            Feats of activity--
                            Nymphs on declivity--
                            Mothers in extacies--
                            Fathers in vextacies--
Lady-loves whisking and frisking and clinging on
True-lovers puffing and blowing and springing on,
Dashing and clashing and shying and flying on,
Blushing and flushing and wriggling and giggling on,
Teasing and pleasing and squeezing and wheezing on,
Everlastingly falling and bawling and sprawling on,
Tumbling and rumbling and grumbling and stumbling on,
                            Any fine afternoon,
                            About July or June--
                            That's just how the Daughters
                            Come down at Dunoon!

                                 H. Cholmondeley Pennell.
