|"The Romantic Age"|
This one is entering her teens,
Ripe for sentimental scenes,
Has picked a gangling unripe male,
Sees herself in a bridal veil,
Presses lips and tosses head,
Declares she's not too young to wed,
Informs you pertly to forget
Romeo and Juliet.
Do not argue, do not shout;
Remind her how that one turned out.
