To Stern Critics
Here’s to stern Critics!
May they some day learn
The forward lookout’s
Better than the stern!
 
 
 
Here’s to her shadow! May it mark the hours Upon the sundial of her life— in flowers!

FASHION! Lovely Dame!
Pledge in sparkling wine!
Let us add her name
To the Muses’ nine!
THOUGHthe lovely Nin
All should pass away
Why should Woman pine,
If but Fashion stay?
THO’the Muses’ lore
Molder on the shelf,
Still may She adore
In Fashion’s glass—Herself.
To
The Typewriter
Here’s to the Typewriter!
Health to her type!
Whether blond or brunette
Or budding or ripe.
If she be the right type
Be she buxom or slight,
When she doesn’t type wrong
She is sure to typewrite.
THE FLOOR
Here’s to the floor,
Our best friend of all,
Who sticks to us close
In the time of our fall.
When benches are fickle
And tables betray
And rugs are revolving,
He meets us half-way.
Our stay and support,
When we can’t stand alone,
With the floor for a backer,
We’ll never be thrown.
Here’s to our friend,
In life’s every stage!
Dry nurse of infancy,
Wet nurse of age!
A healthto our floor!
Supporter and stay;
Though he often be full,
May he never give way!
To
Music
Here’s to Music,
Joy of joys!
One man’s music’s
Another man’s noise.
 
 
TO THEheisblPu!knirD!r

In theGood Worksof others
If not in his own.
