Something happy this way comes:
to up-turn the pouting lip, to give a jump-rope skip.
Something scary this way comes:
to disrupt the routine way, to stir-up mad dismay.
Something friendly this way comes:
to arrest the lonely heart, to affection impart.
Something crazy this way comes:
to amaze the stable mind, to past beliefs unbind.
Something lovely this way comes:
to kindle the fading flame, to hot passion reclaim.
Something ugly this way comes:
to repulse the refined eye, to circulate a lie.
Something kindly this way comes:
to comfort the forsaken, to restore what's taken.
Something evil this way comes:
to entice the wayward soul, to circumvent control.
Something simple this way comes:
to present the common truth, to manifest fine couth.
Something complex this way comes;
to unfold the mystery, to display majesty.
