Agree with your thoughts. I always enjoy this amusing poem to congradulate Frank on the birth of his second child, a son. It is funny, very touching and shows so much family feeling by Jane.
I think families with literary taste like the Austens spent much of their leisure composing verse for amusement to be read aloud ,and, sometimes to commerate events in the family.
