Oh how you frustrate me!
So often boxing in my creativity.
I wish you wouldn't pose such difficulty,

You call too steep a fee
from those of us who are lazy.
Ah! Life would be so easy
if only knowledge of you could be
more of an innate capacity.
Nevertheless, I revel in your intricacy
and I will never grow weary
of this glorious battle that is vocabulary.

I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
