SELFISH.

‘Twas at an evening party

Of romping and delight,

And lass and lad

Bu this time had

A robust appetite.

Two maidens sat together,

Their glances on the dish

That came their way

With a display

Of all that heart could wish.

Two ripe and rosy apples

Charmed with their tempting hue,

When one wee tot

Reached forth and got

The larger of the two.

“You mean – you selfish creature.”

Exclaimed the other elf,

“It’s just too bad,

Because I had

Picked thatone for myself.”
