An Early Summer Idyl. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 30 August 1884

An Early; Summer Idyl. Now shy And bashful lovers sit upon the stoop And sweetly spoon, While downward summer's first mosquitoes swoop With weird low tune, ' And high And higher up the sapphire skies S Slow climbs the moon, And eyes look love to'loving eyes . And sigh greets sigh. The frog A nocturne warbles to his listening mate In accents low. The youth perceives the hour is growiig late And he mustgo; Yea, jog. He kisses her a wild good-bye. Meanwhile, oh, woe I An irate pa, with angry eye, Lets loose the dog. Few moons E'er gazed upon so harrowing a sight With smiling face : A youth, wild-yelling, flying with affright, A dog in chase. Still croons The frog within the sedgy pool, While from the race The dog returns with mouth crammed full Of pantaloons.
