Madrigal

Written by: Lewis Carroll | Biography
 | Quotes (53) |
 (To Miss May Forshall.) 


HE shouts amain, he shouts again, 
(Her brother, fierce, as bluff King Hal), 
"I tell you flat, I shall do that!" 
She softly whispers " 'May' for 'shall'!" 
He wistful sighed one eventide 
(Her friend, that made this Madrigal), 
"And shall I kiss you, pretty Miss!" 
Smiling she answered " 'May' for 'shall'!" 

With eager eyes my reader cries, 
"Your friend must be indeed a val-
-uable child, so sweet, so mild! 
What do you call her?" "May For shall."
