ATALANTA IN CAMDEN TOWN. Ay 'twas here, on this spot, In that summer of yore, Atalanta did not Vote my presence a bore, Nor reply to my tenderest talk "She had heard all that nonsense before." She'd the brooch I had bought, And the necklace and sash on; A nd her heart, as I thought, Was alive to my passion And she'd done up her hair in the style that the Empress had brought into fashion. I had been to the play With my beautiful Peri, But for all I could say, She declared she was weary, That the place was so crowded and hot, and she j "couldn't abide that Dundreary." Then I thought, 'Tis for me That she whines and she whimpers;" And it thrilled me to see Those sensational simpers And I said, This is scrumptious!" a phrase I had learned from the Devonshire shrimpers. And I vowed, 'Twill be said I'm a fortunate fellow, When the breakfast is spread— When the topers are mellow— When the foam of the bride-cake is white, and the fierce orange-blossoms are mellow." Oh, that languishing yawn Those emotional eyes I was drunk with the dawn Of a splendid surmise- I was stung by a serpentine smile, and tossed on a tempest of sighs. And I murmured, I guess The sweet secret thou keepest, And the dainty distress That thou wistfully weepest; And the question is Licence or Banns;' though undoubtedly Banns are the cheapest." Then her white hand I clasped, And with kisses I crowned it; But she glared and she gasped. And she muttered Confound it!" Or at least is was something like that, but the noise of the omnibus drowned it.—Punch. :=,n-
