The Smile Fruit


RUBY TUESDAY

THE SMILE FRUIT

Water-melon, with your smile,
How you tempt us and beguile!
Ruby-red with a touch of pink;
Into which our teeth we sink.
Juice on juice comes dripping down!
How can anybody frown?
When we feel the pangs of thirst
You're the fruit we think of first.
Water-melon, with your smile,
How you tempt us and beguile!

JANE EYRE?

Is this Jane Eyre? No, surely not!
Red lips and finger-nails?
And the rose is red and passionate,
With all that that entails!
The Jane Eyre of my youthful days
Was grey, a little mouse,
Who crept around, unnoticed,
In the corners of the house.
Did she harbour thoughts of passion?
Quite certainly, it seems,
And Mr Rochester's virility
Inhabited her dreams.
But this was a tale of repression,
Of unrequited love.
Red finger-nails and pouting lips!
What are they thinking of?
No, here is my little heroine,
Just as she ought to be,
Suffering pangs of love, alone,
A picture of modesty!
