       Classic humorous and funny poems for women, and about women. The good, the bad, and the lovely.


As beautiful Kitty one morning was tripping,
    With a pitcher of milk from the fair of Coleraine,
When she saw me she stumbled, the pitcher it tumbled,
    And all the sweet buttermilk water'd the plain.

"O, what shall I do now, 'twas looking at you now,
    Sure, sure, such a pitcher I'll ne'er meet again!
'Twas the pride of my dairy: O Barney M'Cleary!
    You're sent as a plague to the girls of Coleraine."

I sat down beside her,--and gently did chide her,
    That such a misfortune should give her such pain;
A kiss then I gave her,--and ere I did leave her,
    She vow'd for such pleasure she'd break it again.

'Twas hay-making season, I can't tell the reason,
    Misfortunes will never come single,--that's plain,
For, very soon after poor Kitty's disaster,
    The devil a pitcher was whole in Coleraine.

                                                        Edward Lysaght.
