BLAOK EYES AND BLUM
The eyes of brilliant, sparkling joi,
Anti titose of bluo that iunildy beam,
Iver disputed when they met,
Which should prostmo to reign supiven4
Each boldly clainte1d the proforouco
Their part isiins contesting strove
At. length boih rested their defenco,
in juidgwont. from the od of Love.
Never before, .dirl any cause,
L'rn'ltuto O muelt einbarrassimdnt;
The b1acks and hmes t,' expound t)ho laws.
Had advoontes Oti tiluiph bent.
For umpircs, chu)o a thousnrd sighs;

For pro'o/y tlie soq's aht loti
And for reporer. thestros. {ib,
Then Love spake thius, disputes 1o lull,
And far the wiso decision .tlw--.
