Verbosity One night, as I was pondering o'er Odd books of old, forgotten lore, My head was strangely overcome By a gentle, drowsy, sleepy hum. And yet Ilm sure I didnlt nap As I beheld these queer things hap. I saw the dictionary shake, I must admit my heart did quake. And then the trembling book did ope Right then I lost my last faint hopel The pages quivered, I did, too. To tell the truth, I was mighty blue. And now the queerest thing occurred, The letters on the leaves grew blurred And suddenly to my astonishment, By a hideous howl the air was rent. I know you'll hardly think this true, But I'll swear to what I say to you- The very words in that dictionary- Now, gentle people, please don,t query-- Leaped out of it and began to tremble-- Or maybe dance, for they were very nimble. And now I noticed that they wore Big coats and hats, and bells galore. Yes, wore them though 'twas then mid- June, And they were dancing to a lively tune. Conceited words, sophisticated, Supercilious, quite elatedl 7 They pranced about in the weirdest way, Seldom saying what they meant to say, But getting themselves all mixed and jumbled As they bumped each other, oh, how they grumbledl By now I was shaking through and through, For words sound scary-and they look it, too. At last, I managed to squeak out a bit. Then lol They acted as though theyld been hit. They screamed and shrilled, then turned and fled, And in their haste cracked many a head. I saw at once what a fool I,d been To let them scare me as they'd done just then. They werenlt half as bad as they looked and talked. Their faces were now as though they'd been chalked. By this time all had struck a hot pace. Then groaning loud each jumped in his place. I marvelled then, I marvel now. I always deeply wonder how Those many words, so quick and wary, Leaped headlong in that dictionary, And found their places, lay right down, Cast off their clothes, and ceased all sound. But I know they did-I looked to see. They were just as orderly as they could be- Except a few so highly dressed That, as they rushed, they got all messed. And so-I caught me up these few- And put them in this poem for you. -Fiizlmgh B. ill arsfzall.
