Harry Graham (22)

Aus »More Ruthless Rhymes for Heartless Homes«:
Harry Graham: Presence of Mind

When, with my little daughter Blanche,
   I climbed the Alps, last summer,
I saw a dreadful avalanche
   About to overcome her;
And, as it swept her down the slope,
   I vaguely wondered whether
I should be wise to cut the rope
   That held us twain together.
              *     *    *
I must confess I'm glad I did,
But still I miss the child – poor kid!
