  A SKETCH FROM THE LIFE  

Its eyes are gray;
        Its hair is either brown
                Or black;
And, strange to say,
        Its dresses button down
                The back!

It wears a plume
        That loves to frisk around
                My ear.
It crowds the room
        With cushions in a mound
                And queer

Old rugs and lamps
        In corners a la Turque
                And things.
It steals my stamps,
        And when I want to work
                It sings!

It rides and skates--
        But then it comes and fills
                My walls
With plaques and plates
        And keeps me paying bills
                And calls.

It's firm; and if
        I should my many woes
                Deplore,
'Twould only sniff
        And perk its little nose
                Some more.

It's bright, though small;
        Its name, you may have guessed,
                Is "Wife."
But, after all,
        It gives a wondrous zest
                To life!

                 Arthur Guiterman.
