Ellis Parker Butler(5 December 1869 - 13 September 1937 / Muscatine / Iowa / United States)
A Scotchman Whose Name Was Isbister
- by Ellis Parker Butler130
A Scotchman whose name was Isbister Had a maiden giraffe he called 'sister' When she said 'Oh, be mine, Be my sweet Valentine!' He just shinned up her long neck and kissed her.
- by Ellis Parker Butler96
She plucked a blossom fair to see; Upon my coat I let her pin it; And thus we stood beneath the tree A minute.
She turned her smiling face to me; I saw a roguish sweetness in it; I kissed her once;—it took, maybe, A minute.
The time was paltry, you'll agree; It took but little to begin it; But since my heart has not been free A minute.
