So easy 'tis to make a rhyme...
It is strange how one works easily at times. I wrote this so quickly that I might almost say I had reached the end before I had come to the beginning. In such a mood I wonder why everybody does not write poetry. Get a Roget's Thesaurus , a rhyming dictionary: sit before your typewriter with a strong glass of coffee at your elbow, and just click the stuff off.
So easy 'tis to make a rhyme,
Then, oh, how charming it would be
Or else what rapture it would yield,
Or if for tea and toast you yearned,
Your baker could the fashion set;
Your tailor's bill . . . well, I'll be blowed!
So easy 'tis to rhyme . . . yet stay!
