Lewis Carroll Quote
'O gin I find another lady,'
He said wi' sighs and tears,
'I wot my coortin' sall not be
Another thirty years: 'For gin I find a lady gay,
Exactly to my taste,
I'll pop the question, aye or nay,
In twenty years at maist.'
The Lang Coortin', last two sts. - Rhyme? and Reason? (1883)
