Here's a funny poem by Eugene Field...
Arrayed in snow-white pants and vest,
And other raiment fair to view,
I stood before my sweetheart Sue-
The charming creature I love best.
"Tell me and does my costume suit?"
I asked that apple of my eye-
And then the charmer made reply,
"Oh, yes, you
Although I frequently had heard
My sweetheart vent her pleasure so,
I must confess I did not know
The meaning of that favorite word.
But presently at window side
We stood and watched the passing throng,
And soon a donkey passed along
With ears like wings extended wide.
And gazing at the doleful brute
My sweetheart gave a merry cry-
I quote her language with a sigh-
"O Charlie, ain't he awful cute?"
