A Valentine Acrostic

An Acrostic

TO THE PRETTIEST GIRL IN FREDERICK.

Ah, lady fair with sun-kis’d hair,
Valorously I sing thy charms,
And bid dull care of thee beware
Lest I ‘gainst it do take up arms.
Earth holds for me no lure but thee —
No idol that I cherish more,
Throughout the sea there’s naught could be
I‘d stranger love or so adore,.
Now, if I’m not too vituline,
Enroll me for your Valentine!

MR. GUPPY.
February 14th, 1884.
