THE OLD
ARM CHAIR

I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, AND WHO SHALL DARE
TO CHIDE ME FOR LOVING THAT OLD ARM CHAIR;
I HAVE TREASURED IT LONG AS A SAINTED PRIZE,
I'VE BEDEWED IT WITH TEARS,
AND EMBALMED IT WITH SIGHS;
TIS BOUND BY A THOUSAND BANDS TO MY HEART:
NOT A TIE WILL BREAK, NOT A LINK WILL START,
WOULD YOU LEARN THE SPELL, A MOTHER SAT THERE,
AND A SACRED THING IS THAT OLD ARM CHAIR.
