The Lute of Mysticism.
CISTER's found a new enjoymeat
Since we brought her horse from France.
With a mwd that craves erapJoj-raent
And a yoarnng for romance.
Is k strange that she has shaken
Off convention's bonds aad flows
To a mystic who has takes
Fifty women for his own'?
WHEN fhe war began she hurried.
Saying. "Here's a chance for thrills."
Father, who had kmg been worried,
Bkssed her as he paid the bfrts.
While it lasted, fierce and frightful.
Daily costing more and raore,
She was happy, aad ekhghtfoJ,
In the uniform she wore.
DUT, her great adventure ended,
Sadness settled on her face;
From exciteBent she descended
To the stupid comraoopkee; -Dinners,
theaters and dances.
AO were deadly dull and tame;
Then the mystic k whose glances
There were cryptic meanings came.
CHE has gone to find new pleasure
In die mystic's bungalow.
Leaning secrets she may treasure
While the seasons come and go:
Where the moments aM are thriBkg
And the orgies sew and weird
Sister lingers more than willing.
Seeing utcient secrets cleared.
WHY mttst people be forever
Irderfering with the cuhs.
Chasing mystics who endeavor
To achieve benign results?
Why must ladies, if they tire
Of life's common, decent 3k,
Be disturbed when they desire
To acquire mystic thrills?
