Poem by Phoebe Cary

* * *

WHEN lovely woman wants a favor,
    And finds, too late, that man won't bend, 
What earthly circumstance can save her
    From disappointment in the end?

The only way to bring him over,
    The last experiment to try, 
Whether a husband or a lover,
    If he have feeling, is, to cry!
