Perfectly Luffly

In spite of her sniffle
Isabel's chiffle.
Some girls with a sniffle
Would be weepy and tiffle;
They would look awful,
Like a rained-on waffle,
But Isabel's chiffle
In spite of her sniffle.
Her nose is more red
With a cold in her head,
But then, to be sure,
Her eyes are bluer.
Some girls with a snuffle,
Their tempers are uffle.
But when Isabel's snivelly
She's snivelly civilly,
And when she's snuffly
She's perfectly luffly.
- Ogden Nash

It took me a while to realize that "chiffle" is "cheerful"!

It took me a while to figure out who "Isabelle" was?!?! I kept thinking "the ole' girl has lost it". She can't even remember neice#2's name.

Took me about half way thru to realize the word was cheerful too, so I read it over.
Funny how one little word really does make a difference!
Cheerful is a good thing, we love cheerful :)
