THE HALL PORTER

  • O WILLIAM, aren’t you very tired
  • Of always standing at the door,
  • Opening and shutting when required:
  • Your fate you surely must deplore,
  • And long at times for something more?
  • But very smart and grand you look,
  • I heard Louisa say to Jane
  • She never had been quite so took!
  • Yet would I not your place retain
  • For all the praises one might gain!
