Hi everyone! They're not as numerous as last week, but some good ones!
I hope you will allow
It's time to take my bow
I love a good play
But marry? No way
That is my 'lover's' vow
Miss Crawford required some practice
Before facing all of the actors.
She found Fanny's eyrie
And made her as cheery
As one who embraces a cactus.
Miss Crawford, despite all she knew
Of what Henry plotted to do,
Scarcely did remonstrate
Over poor Fanny's fate.
"Woman's duty by woman? Phoo phoo!"
Miss Crawford thinks Edmund should veer
From churchiness as a career.
Oh, that ordination!
Its time draws alarmingly near
To be loved by this girl without art
Would be such a great bit of sport!
Fanny hates Henry,
But he thinks it's easy
to make a small hole in her heart.
Without Henry to save her from penance,
Maria maintained her proud silence.
To Sotherton pledged?
Married to the hedge
or Rushworth? You can't tell the difference.
Henry Crawford with hearts has been trifling.
The Miss Bertrams he's finished beguiling.
Now he finally sees,
Though Miss Crawford may tease,
To be loved by Miss Price would be something.
Sir Thomas was thought far away
So the young people planned on a play
In shock did they learn
Of his surprising return
No curtain calls witnessed that day !
A dictionary’s purpose I’ll remind
May define a word most unkind
Perhaps I am crazy
But look up “lazy”
A picture of Lady Bertram you’ll find?
