Fun, April 6, 1901

Morning Carol.

Oh! the present is gay,
 And the future is bright,
As I lie on my bed
 With a heart that is light,
For I think with a smile
 (And I know I am right)
That my face is a fairly
 Presentable sight,
And I need not get up
 For ten minutes quite.
For—oh! rapture ecstatic,
 I shaved overnight.
