GETTING SQUARE. I WAS just a little " shaver," but I never shall forget The night my sister wedded-I can see her sweet face yet; I was standing in the hallway, peeping through tiie parlour door, For the guests had all departed and the wed ding feast was o'er. And the man she called her husband laid her sweet face, young and shy, On his bosom, as be held her, and my sister let it lie. Then he talked a lot of nonsense, soft and smooth, like sweetened mush, And my sister laughed and listened, with her cheeks all in a blush. As my sister he had never dared to kiss her in bis Ufe, And I couldn't see the difference 'twixt my Bister and his wife ; But he had a little sister, and I made a vow right there That as soon as I was older I'd endeavour to get square. I am older now, and wiser, and Fm smiling as I sit, For I talk that same soft nonsense, and I'm not ashamed of it. Now whene'er I see her husband take my sister on his knee I go thro' the same manouvre with his sister, don't you see ?...
