Thy steps quick and brief
When you came calling,
Not as those of a burglar in the thick of the dense night,
But as those of that distant relation everyone yearned to see.
You came calling in thine stupendous elegance and innocence.
When the lights shone and your smile beamed,
The world was prepared to give you a standing ovation.
Alas! in thine quaint quick brief steps,
You chose a more glamorous destination,
Leaving crescent smiles on many a lip that rejoiced at your announcement.
