1: Tin Wedding Whistle | by Ogden Nash
2: Though you know it anyhow
3: Listen to me, darling, now,
5: Proving what I need not prove | How I know I love you, love.
6: Near and far, near and far, | I am happy where you are;
7: Likewise I have never learnt How to be it where you aren't.
8: Far and wide, far and wide,
9: I can walk with you beside;
10: Furthermore, I tell you what, | I sit and sulk where you are not.
11: Visitors remark my frown | When you're upstairs and I am down,
12: Yes, and I'm afraid I pout When I'm indoors and you are out;
13: But how contentedly I view | Any room containing you.
14: In fact I care not where you be,
15: Just as long as it's with me.
17: In all your absences I glimpse Fire and flood and trolls and imps.
18: Is your train a minute slothful? | I goad the stationmaster wrothful.
20: When with friends to bridge you drive
21: I never know if you're alive,
23: And when you linger late in shops I long to telephone the cops.
25: Yet how worth the waiting for, To see you coming through the door.
26: Somehow, I can be complacent Never but with you adjacent.
28: Near and far, near and far, | I am happy where you are;
31: Likewise I have never learnt | How to be it where you aren't.
36: Then grudge me not my fond endeavor, | To hold you in my sight forever;
40: Let none, not even you, disparage
41: Such a valid reason for a marriage.
