The Messed Damozel leaned out
    From the gold cube of Heav'n;
There were three cubes within her hands,
    And the cubes in her hair were seven;
I looked, and looked, and looked, and looked--
    I could not see her, even.

Her robe, a cube from clasp to hem,
    Was moderately clear;
Methought I saw two cubic eyes,
    When I had looked a year;
But when I turned to tell the world,
    Those eyes did disappear!

It was the rampart of some house
    That she was standing on;
That much, at least, was plain to me
    As her I gazed upon;
But even as I gazed, alas!
    The rampart, too, was gone!

(I saw her smile!) Oh, no, I didn't,
    Though long mine eyes did stare;
The cubes closed down and shut her out;
    I wept in deep despair;
But this I know, and know full well--
    She simply wasn't there!
