A BALLADE OF LENT.
The days of penance are at hand;
Maidens and men are nobly bent
On self-denial, duly planned
According to the rules of Lent.
Away with odle merriment—
Dinners and dances, cards and plays 1
We have the pious penitent—
But only for the Forty Days.
Flirtation by Jeannette is banned;
My mood Is likewise reverent;
To church I go, at her command,
And hear the sermon eloquent
Of deeds undone and time misspent;
We vow reform; and who shall raise
The question if it's permanent,
Or only for the Forty Days?
While self-denial rules the land,
The world of fashion must Invent
Amusement of a harmless brand—
^stlmes to suit the innocent;
The sins we love must now be blent
With piety—for Fashion pays
Profound regard to precedent—
But only for the Forty Days.
Satan, you grumbler, be content!
Though we renounce you and your
ways, • ■»
And think it proper to repent,
It's only for the Forty Days!
—Frank Roe Batchelder.
